About

The recent advancements of ICT have given the opportunity to companies, public administrations and various Critical Infrastructures to offer new and innovative services and at the same time lower their operational costs. These advancements, however, were quickly adopted without proper evaluation of their impact on security, leaving current IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operation Technology) systems vulnerable to various kinds of cyberattacks. Furthermore, cybersecurity protection of IT and/or OT networks, data and storage areas in small and medium enterprises (SMEs) is also problematic since such companies do not have the resources, expertise as well as funds to support and maintain cybersecurity operations in their premises. The International workshop on Information & Operational Technology (IT & OT) security systems 2019 aims to bring together viewpoints from diverse areas to explore the commonalities of security problems and solutions for advancing the collective science and practice of IT and OT security protection as well as promote security awareness and cybersecurity solutions for the SME community.
