Unlocking Cyber Resilience in Industrial Environments: 5 Principles

Five guiding principles with actionable implementation approaches for cyber resilient operational technology environments

Published: November 2023

The World Economic Forum’s white paper offers vital guidelines for enhancing cyber security within operational technology (OT) environments.

With the increasing convergence of OT and IT (information technology), the paper emphasises the importance of collaboration between OT teams and IT security personnel, necessary because safeguarding OT environments requires specialised knowledge and practices that go beyond traditional IT security measures.

Developed in partnership with experts from the electricity, manufacturing, and oil and gas sectors, the white paper presents a set of practical and accessible principles and supporting actions. These are designed to assist cyber leaders in effectively protecting, maintaining, and monitoring their industrial OT environments, thereby ensuring ongoing business operations.
