OT stands for Operational Technology. This refers to both hardware and software that control and monitor physical devices. The video explains in a simple way how equipment in healthcare is attacked and how you can protect yourself against it with OT security solutions.

A facility operator (asset owner) has a different perspective and different priorities than an integrator or a component manufacturer (product supplier). Therefore, OT security concepts must always be individually coordinated.
