Facility managers have been consumed by the COVID-19 pandemic over the last 18 months. As the pandemic continues to linger and hopefully eventually fade away, next up in the lineup of priorities for managers is cybersecurity.
Honeywell released a report recently that says improving cybersecurity for operational technology (OT) is one of the top priorities for managers over the next 12 to 18 months.
In a report titled, “Protecting Operational Technology in Facilities from Cyber Threats: Constraints and Realities,” more than seven of 10 managers (71 percent) said they consider improving cybersecurity for OT as a concern or worry at their facilities.
