Authored by Don Brown, Sr. Delivery Manager, Cybersecurity & Infrastructure, Verista

If you work in a Life Sciences company, you’re probably hearing more and more about Operational (OT) cybersecurity. But what does this mean? An OT network consists of all of the systems that support operations, such as industrial control devices, lab processing equipment, and QC test instruments. Often, automation engineers and IT system administrators suddenly find themselves in charge of an OT Network. Anyone in that position may be wondering where to start when it comes to securing the network or simply proving that it is, indeed, secure.

This whitepaper explores 15 low/no-cost solutions you can implement to help ensure your networks, and therefore operations, are safe. The approach follows the Center for Internet Security (CIS) Controls v8 Implementation Group 1.
