The last few years have seen a significant convergence between Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT), which controls much of our industrial and critical national infrastructure. This convergence is being accelerated by the rapid growth in the Internet of Things (IoT). Blurring boundaries between IT, OT and IoT are increasing the need for more integrated, collaborative cyber security strategies. The International Cyber Security Center of Excellence (INCS-CoE) plans to pursue collaboration aimed at designing new integrated strategies that combine IT, OT and IoT security efforts and to maximize use of existing and novel cyber security resources.

This paper briefly reviews current activities in the UK, US and Japan in the OT security and IoT spaces.
We identify three main areas for potential collaboration:

  1. Supply Chain Security
  2. Sharing of Testbed Facilities
  3. Sharing of datasets
