Information Technology: (IT) is the common term for the entire spectrum of information processing, including software, hardware, communication technologies and related services that are used for conducting business-type transactions, such as cost and tax accounting, billing and revenue collection, asset tracking and depreciation, human resource records and time-keeping, and customer records.
Operational Technology: (OT) includes systems that deal with the actual running of the assets and are used to ensure system integrity and to meet the technical constraints of the system. They are event-driven and, frequently, use real-time software applications, and devices with embedded software. These SCADA and Process Control systems are mission-critical and have requirements that frequently exceed those of standard solutions for IT

Operational Technology Challenges
OT systems are becoming increasingly more sophisticated, and the level of OT data continues to increase as more intelligent devices and communications are added to process control and SCADA systems. The evolution of OT Systems includes IP based LAN and WAN networks, integrated enterprise resource systems, continued adoption of geospatial technologies, server virtualization, and mobile technologies. This increase in the sophistication and complexity also dramatically increases the cyber threat profile. The threat landscape has become more virulent with organized cyber criminals targeting commercial operations and nation-state sponsored threats for access and control of critical infrastructure. TSI specialists can help you navigate this complex environment to achieve your business objectives while maintaining the security and reliability of your infrastructure.
