According to a recent announcement, Claroty, an industrial cybersecurity company, has partnered with the Global Resilience Foundation (GRF) to provide its members access to original threat research, best practices, and strategic content that is created with the aim of helping to guide the convergence of information technology (IT) security and operational technology (OT) security strategies. Claroty said it will share security information with Operational Technology Information Sharing and Analysis Center (OT-ISAC), and other GRF affiliated ISACs leveraging operational technology.

“We are pleased to work with Claroty, our first OT focused security partner, to help advance security for critical infrastructure sharing communities,” said Mark Orsi, President, GRF. “Our members are very aware of how important it is to secure their OT environments, and how the increasing connectivity between IT and OT systems translates to greater threats to physical processes and systems.”

GRF is a hub for sharing communities to protect industries and critical infrastructure through operational cross-sector sharing of cyber threat information and physical security risks. GRF offers member communities discounts on vendor tools and training, and access to GRF’s automated, cross-industry, multidirectional data sharing program designed to allow real-time distribution and consumption of threat information.

“Information sharing is a critical tool for empowering OT cyber defenders, and partnerships like ours with the Global Resilience Foundation are a trusted, collaborative, and efficient way to help organizations get the guidance they need to better secure their OT environments,” said Dave Weinstein, Chief Security Officer, Claroty. “Claroty possesses a privileged perspective of the OT threat landscape, and we are very much looking forward to sharing it with GRF and its members across multiple sectors to bolster their collective cybersecurity for both OT and IT infrastructure.”
