Communication and understanding between the information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) department needs to improve as cyber attacks become more prevalent.
A combination of information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) cybersecurity expertise is required to manage the influx of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices and increased IT/OT integration.
Manufacturers' technology often wasn’t built to suppress today’s digital threats and with the advent of mobile technology in the workplace, it is easy for hackers to exploit this soft weaknesses.
With increased connectivity between different devices, it’s critical to implement additional cybersecurity measures.
A report by ESI ThoughtLab, in conjunction with Willis Towers Watson, found untrained staff is the greatest cybersecurity risk to business and a vast majority of companies know this.
Companies can help prevent cyberattacks by forming a security operations center (SOC) to get the information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) on the same page with the same goals.
Researchers have received a $750,000 grant to develop and commercialize a next-generation cryptosystem capable of protecting IoT devices from cybersecurity attacks through advanced authentication procedures.
For a robot to be safe, it must also be secure from cyberattacks in the age of Industrie 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Everyone in the information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) departments are responsible for ensuring this happens.
The Axio 360 NIST-CSF risk management platform is designed to establish a baseline for cyber readiness, and provides companies a risk reduction roadmap for ongoing improvement.
There is many opinions and beliefs on what an industrial control system (ICS) is and what the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) comprises, which makes a common understanding crucial.
