Cybersecurity on the Edge - Part 2

Posted by Janice Colmer on Jul 26, 2022 11:15:42 AM

Part 2 of our interview with Industrial Cybersecurity Pulse addresses edge communications and reducing network complexity.

Last week in the OptoBlog, we shared a recent interview where Josh Eastburn had a discussion with ICS Pulse's Gary Cohen about using industrial devices on the edge of your networks and their effect on cybersecurity.

Their conversation continues in Part 2 of this Expert Interview series and covers: 

  • OT data risks
  • Different OT communication protocol models
  • How MQTT addresses security threats
  • Reducing network complexity

You can watch Part 2 now or read the complete article on Industrial Cybersecurity Pulse.

For more information on cybersecurity best practices, visit the Cybersecurity Resources page on the Opto 22 website. 

And if you're interested in learning more about the MQTT protocol, the Industrial-strength MQTT/Sparkplug B white paper is a good place to start. It's available for download, along with several other MQTT website resources.
