Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are essential to operating today’s enterprises, but the proliferation of connected devices, and the growing complexity of CPS environments has created a security blind spot for today’s security leaders.

In this report, 3 Initial Steps to Address Unsecure Cyber-Physical Systems, Gartner® identifies conditions exacerbating CPS cybersecurity risks, and offers a framework for addressing and mitigating those risks:

Step One: Discover all CPS.
Step Two: Anchor CPS Risk Strategies to Business Value and Vertical Industry Needs.
Step Three: Select CPS Risk Challenges Carefully and Then Iterate.

“Business-led Internet of Things or converged OT-IT projects have largely underestimated or ignored security and safety risks. Security and risk management leaders must go beyond data security by embracing cyber-physical system security efforts, or they will soon be overwhelmed by new threats.”

Ordr’s “see,” “know,” “secure” approach to protecting connected devices addresses these risks, while providing many benefits for managing and securing CPS.
