Gartner Explores Cyber-Physical Security Strategies.

“The financial impact of Cyber-Physical Security System attacks will reach over $50 billion by 2023.”

In this Gartner Report: “How to Develop a Security Vision and Strategy for Cyber-Physical Systems” Gartner states: “By 2023, 75% of organizations will restructure risk and security governance to address new cyber-physical systems (CPS) and converged IT, OT, Internet of Things (IoT) and physical security needs, which is an increase from fewer than 15% today.


To create a CPS strategy that supports business resilience and growth goals in today’s fast-evolving environments, Security and Risk leaders need to follow these steps :

Use “voice of the business” language to lay out a vision and strategy that directly links security and risk profiles to business outcomes.
Follow a classic current-state assessment, gap analysis, prioritization, approval and reporting process flow to formalize the vision into actions.
Monitor and adapt the strategy continuously to account for emerging risk impacts, such as regulations, the increasing autonomy of users and business units, or changes in technologies.
