Operations Technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) Security
The Internet of Things (IoT) describes the network of physical objects—“things”—that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the internet. These devices range from ordinary household objects to sophisticated industrial tools.
OT security is the full stack of hardware and software being used to monitor, detect and control changes to devices, processes and events. OT security is commonly used to protect Industrial Systems and networks from attacks.
Some of the topics covered under this domain include the following:
- Introduction to IoT and OT Computing
- Edge and Fog Computing
- Embedded Systems
- Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) Security
