Nearly 60% of executives at critical infrastructure operators polled in a recent survey said they lack appropriate controls to protect their environments from security threats.

While organizations have made significant investments to secure their IT infrastructures, they have not fully addressed threats to operational technology (OT) environments: 57 out of 100 executives from various critical infrastructure organizations surveyed by Indegy said they are not confident that their enterprise nor other infrastructure companies are in control of OT security.

The poll also underscores the lack of preparedness in key sectors, including energy, utilities and manufacturing. For instance, 35% of respondents said they have little visibility into the current state of security within their environment, while 23% reported they have no visibility. Meanwhile, 63% said that insider threats and misconfigurations are the biggest security risks they currently face.
