White Paper explores how Industrial IoT can help shape and contextualise cyber security in industrial environments

Threats posed by industrial cyber security has steadily been gaining relevance over the past twenty years. Presently, when the idea of Internet of Things (IoT) is beginning to pervade all areas of industrial operation, cyber security is set to take on a new dimension, necessitating a more rigorous and robust approach.

Cyber Security in the Era of Industrial IoT is a new white paper, published by Frost & Sullivan that reflects on the growing needs and complexity of cyber security in a production environment driven by the trend of Industrial IoT. The paper's key intent is to indicate how the convergence of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) will close the gap between safety and security that currently exists in industrial processes.

"Industrial cyber security is primarily about combining the principles of safety from the OT environment and the ideals of security from the IT environment," notes Frost & Sullivan Industrial...
