Minding the the IT-OT Gap: Student Project

As we have built the industrial cybersecurity program one of the coolest things we have done is develop our ESET 1181 Introduction to Cyber-Physical Systems course.

Industrial Cybersecurity students take the course in their first semester. I like to think of it as the entire program packed into a nutshell. With 20+ hands-on activities, students get brief exposure to topics that other courses will cover in greater depth.

During lucky week 13, we discuss the roles and responsibilities that professionals will encounter, and describe the factors (especially the non-technology factors) that have created the IT-OT gap.

I describe several real-life experiences where the gap loomed beneath. Then I ask students to deploy their creative energies to express gap. Over the years students have submitted poetry, skits, videos, and posters. I wanted to highlight a couple student videos that you might find entertaining. Happy viewing!
