Incident response in OT cybersecurity environments present unique challenges compared to traditional IT environments. The complexity of varied architectures, software versions and proprietary protocols makes incident response challenging.
In OT environments, incidents can have immediate and severe consequences on critical operations. The priority is to minimize any disruption and restore operations quickly. Therefore, incident response activities need to be carefully planned and executed to ensure quick recovery without compromising safety or further escalating the incident.
OT cybersecurity requires specialized skills and knowledge that doesn’t necessarily transfer from an IT background. Finding skilled personnel who understand the unique aspects of OT systems can be challenging, which is why partnering with an OT cybersecurity partner can be very beneficial and cost effective.

The average cost of such an incident is $3 million which includes downtime, replacement of equipment, fines and labour costs of IT and OT security personal.
The average detection time of an incident is 170 days. After detection, the severity and impact must be analyzed which takes on average another 66 days. Finally, it takes 80 days to remediate the cybersecurity incident making it to a total of 316 days from initial detection to remediation.
