New global report from Claroty shows the importance of IT and OT interconnectivity in order to advance digital initiatives and thrive in a post-pandemic future Claroty, the global leader in operational technology (OT) security, released new research which revealed that a majority of U.S. industrial enterprises (53%) have seen an increase in cybersecurity threats since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The independent global survey of 1,100 full-time information technology (IT) and OT security professionals who own, operate, or otherwise support critical infrastructure components within large enterprises, explores how their concerns, experiences, and attitudes have shifted since the crisis began in March. According to the survey report, The Critical Convergence of IT and OT Security in a Global Crisis, over half (51%) of U.S.-based respondents say their organization is now more of a target for cyber criminals compared to before COVID-19, with a striking 67% having seen cyber criminals use new tactics to target their organization.

While IT/OT convergence unlocks business value in terms of operations efficiency, performance, and quality of services, it can also be detrimental because threats both targeted and non-targeted can move freely between IT and OT environments. However, security gaps between IT and OT remain. Sixty-two percent of U.S. respondents have found it more challenging to collaborate with their IT or OT counterparts during the pandemic. In addition to this, 44% believe that their OT networks are less secure than their IT networks.

- Adapting to disruption: Having a crisis plan that enables secure remote access plays a vital role in organizations’ ability to adapt quickly and safely to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is reflected in the commonality among the 25% of U.S. respondents whose top cybersecurity executive did not have a pre-existing response plan, the 26% whose organizations struggled with the shift to a dispersed workforce, and the 22% who said their organization did not have a pre-existing secure remote access solution (aside from VPN, which is not secure enough for OT) that allowed employees to securely work from a remote location.
- Preparing for future disruptions: However, an overwhelming majority of U.S. respondents (84%) expressed confidence that their organization is prepared, from a cybersecurity perspective, for another major disruption down the road. Additionally, 88% report that their organization has updated its cybersecurity crisis response plan to reflect a more remote workforce.
- Cybersecurity leadership: Cybersecurity executives, including CISOs, have been thrust into the spotlight since the start of the pandemic, tasked with implementing new technologies to ensure their organization’s networks and employees are fully secure. U.S. respondents recognize their hard work, as 60% believe that their CISO has shown good leadership. Furthermore, 86% of respondents say their organization’s leadership made cybersecurity a priority during the pandemic, and 83% say CISOs have provided proper training resources for working within a dispersed organization.
- Sector-specific threat landscape: According to U.S. respondents, the top five industrial sectors most vulnerable to a cyber attack are manufacturing (15.40%), building management systems (12.80%), electric utilities (12.60%), pharmaceuticals, (12.40%) and consumer goods (12.00%). The narrow differences between these rankings suggest that industrial sectors across the board are prime targets at elevated risk.
Huawei Atlas 900 AI Cluster Wins the Only Best of Show Award for IA at Interop Tokyo 2020 - AiThority
The Interop Tokyo 2020 panel of judges has awarded Huawei Atlas 900 AI cluster the Best of Show Award in recognition of its powerful
Tony Xu , CEO of Huawei Ascend Computing, said: “The Huawei Atlas AI computing solution offers powerful computing and energy efficiency for all AI scenarios across devices, edge and cloud. The Atlas 900 AI cluster offers hubs Data with effective computing, high linearity, and best energy efficiency to accelerate data-driven research, such as astronomical exploration, weather forecasting, oil exploration, and genetic sequencing. Research advances translate into practical benefits for people of all the world”. Atlas 900 is the world’s fastest AI training cluster. It offers a total computing power of 256 to 1024 petaFLOPS at an average precision (FP16), equivalent to the computing power of 500,000 personal computers. Atlas 900 broke the world record with the ResNet-50 reference test for model training completing the training in 59.8 seconds. Atlas 900 is the only product capable of completing training in less than a minute. Atlas 900 has extensive applications in scientific research and business innovation for the fastest training of AI models with images and videos. Atlas 900 integrates three interfaces for high-speed interconnection: Huawei Cache Coherence System (HCCS), PCIe 4.0, and 100G Ethernet. The Atlas 900 AI cluster uses switches from the Huawei CloudEngine data center to work on a dedicated 100 TB / s full mesh, non-blocking network for parameter synchronization. The network reduces parameter synchronization latency by 10 to 70 percent to streamline IA model training.
