OT security is a strong requirement in oil and gas companies among other industries.
Any firm leveraging this technology would need regular reviews of the OT environment and supporting environment.

In addition, the security of each component of the OT network architecture must be tested regularly with relevant controls applied.

Penetration testing, the art of testing and breaking in to OT networks is a niche domain, but it works with the same end goal to identify and validate gaps in security processes, where the attacks and security controls are tailored around OT networks.
