Digital twins and their potential for OT security
A digital twin is a virtual representation of a real system or device. It accompanies its physical counterpart during its entire life cycle. Tests, optimization procedures and bug hunting can be carried out on the twin first without involving the real device (that may not even exist at that moment). In this article, I want to give you some recommendations on how to harness that potential for improving upon the state of OT security (Operational Technology Security), e.g., within manufacturing or building automation.
