Conclusion and further reading - Security Best Practices for Manufacturing OT

Conclusion and further reading

In summary, this document provided the best practices to architect and manage manufacturing OT environments for on-premises hybrid workloads using the AWS Cloud. We started with understanding the traditional network architecture using the industry standard Purdue model. We then outlined how AWS Edge and AWS Cloud services contribute to modernization of the traditional operation model. We discussed common usage patterns in the scenarios. We highlighted how the IT/OT convergence introduces new security challenges and established fundamental security principles to deal with these new challenges. We then provided prescriptive guidance and best practices on these specific challenges such as securing the network connection to the cloud, and securely accessing, managing and continuously monitoring industrial assets and OT network resources.
