It’s time to think about cybersecurity as security. It is special, but in the industrial world it is the proper functioning that is the objective. For example, data, which is for the most part an essential asset to be protected in IT, is no longer in OT the purpose:  it is subordinate to proper functioning.

In addition, industrial cybersecurity is a process in its own right, new, but which follows a fairly simple work-flow, on which all the repositories are convergent: making an inventory,  analyzing, setting up  security in proportion, risks, and monitor security. The  solutions proposed by Cymutec present this continuity to ensure not only the initialization of the process, but also its efficiency in safety throughout the life of the equipment and developments in the field.
