OT Data Next

For a very long time, OT data has been contained in isolated industrial environments, shrouding it in mystery. As OT data is the starting point for industrial digital transformation, a better understanding of OT data is

Tearing Down OT Language Barriers and the Rise of Smart Machines

If we all speak the same language, communication will be much faster and without any delays or misunderstandings. OT systems, however, are like islands, each with their own languages, because they have been developed separately over decades. Thus, it is difficult to connect them all together. In this episode, we invite Jack Lin, Moxa's industrial networking expert who has extensive experience in seamlessly connecting industrial machines, to share with us how to achieve the transformation of OT systems through next-generation industrial Ethernet. The Content of This Episode(00:00) Industrial Ethernet no longer meets the needs of Industry 4.0. Why?(02:38) How to seamlessly connect devices and systems(08:07) A use case of time-sensitive networking (TSN)(13:40) What are the next steps for OT data? Guest Profile:Jack Lin is a product manager in the industrial networking infrastructure team and is also the project lead for Moxa’s global TSN initiative project. In recent years, he has been committed to promoting the implementation and ecosystem development of advanced industrial Ethernet technology in Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet. Jack also represents Moxa in several industrial automation associations as well as groups that define standards, including IEEE 802.1 TSN Task Group, OPC Foundation, CLPA, EtherCAT Technology Group. He also led the team to participate in IIC TSN testbed, ECC TSN testbed, LNI 4.0 TSN testbed, and other international TSN test platforms.

Why Is Your OT Data Still Running Around in Its Birthday Suit?

OT’s security protocol rarely takes IT’s priorities into consideration. This is why a lot of OT communication protocols are not originally designed with encryptions or authentications. But in the era of industrial digital transformation, can OT data still afford to run around naked in an environment teeming with hackers and viruses? In this episode, we invite Jesse Ku, Moxa’s cybersecurity consultant, to share his insights with you. The Content of This Episode(00:00) Why OT and IT have different views on data security(07:27) If you want to start OT security, what is the biggest challenge?(13:06) How to start transforming your OT cybersecurity(17:50) What is the next frontier for OT cybersecurity? Guest Profile:Jesse Ku is a cybersecurity consultant at Moxa. He has extensive experience in OT and ICS security, having worked with both public and private sectors, which include critical infrastructure, utilities, and manufacturing. Focusing on IT/OT cybersecurity and cyberthreat trends, Jesse and his team have been helping customers worldwide to develop the best possible solutions to counter the rising tide of cyberattacks and to enhance industrial cybersecurity. As the host of Moxa Security Talks, Jesse often exchanges and shares ideas with other cybersecurity experts in the field.  He is a certified professional in the fields of ethical hacking (CEH), computer forensics (CHFI), security management (SSCP), and OT cybersecurity (IEC/ISA 62443 Cybersecurity Fundamental Specialist).
