The attack on the Oldsmar water facility in Florida came as a big surprise to their operations team, but was of little surprise to those in the know. There has been a steady increase in state-level cyberattacks on critical infrastructure and industrial control systems – systems run by Operational Technology.

- What went wrong in existing attacks
- Actions that should have been taken during the attacks; and
- Mitigation strategies to prevent future attacks
