Operational Technology (OT) refers to computing systems that are used to manage industrial operations as opposed to administrative operations such as Information Technology (IT).  OT includes Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems used in critical infrastructures such as water, oil & gas, energy, and utilities.  This webinar will describe the differing approaches to cybersecurity in OT versus IT environments, and how education and training providers can help students and employees through specialized curriculum and lab environments, better secure ICS and SCADA systems.
