Motor Oil confronts the complexities of strict regulations in the oil and gas industry, securing multiple sites and maintaining a seamless production with Honeywell’s Cybersecurity Consulting Services.
Operational technology (OT) cybersecurity was not always a part of conversations around production environments. The main concern was always the efficiency of the production output.
