“The security industry is losing the IoT security battle. Every season brings additional connected devices, but many of these low-cost connected items aren’t brought to market with security in mind.” David Dufour, vice president of engineering and cyber-security, Webroot
AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) December 14, 2017
The industrial IoT will usher in a fourth industrial revolution, and raise a storm. Manufacturing and distribution businesses anchored by old systems and processes will be drowned by the rising tide; those that transform their operations will catch a sail.
But it presents great risk, as well as great opportunity. The industrial IoT represents uncharted waters with unknowable threats. The most significant of these is digital security. As factories and warehouses – once isolated and secured – become increasingly connected, and hackers become increasingly sophisticated, so new attack vectors and vulnerabilities will emerge.
This report, titled Industrial IoT security--the pitfalls and practicalities of securing manufacturing and supply chain IoT systems, considers what is at stake for manufacturing and supply chain businesses, describes vulnerabilities in the industrial IoT stack and associated business processes, and recommends practical steps to minimize security breaches.
