Security Breach: Tech Debt and the Unsexy Side of Cybersecurity

How the legacy of OT innovation contributes to cyber challenges.

Vulnerabilities across the cybersecurity landscape are obviously trending in an upward direction. Perhaps most concerning, however, is the number of zero and one-day vulnerabilities being uncovered in key industrial control systems by many of the sector’s leading providers of software, automation and system integration services.

These vulnerabilities not only open the door for potential attacks, but lend credence to other cybersecurity challenges, such as patching, proper segmentation strategies and trying to accommodate the potential downtime associated with identifying and rectifying these embedded problems. 

Constantine Antoniou, Cybersecurity Business Consultant in Schneider Electric's Global Cybersecurity Solutions and Services business, promises to offer a unique perspective on these challenges and potential solutions.
