As illustrated in the chart, the global population’s consumer and business appetite for connectivity is getting bigger and shows no signs of abating. Unsurprisingly, this interconnectedness presents an increasingly tempting target for bad actors, whether state-sponsored or not, to disrupt and exploit, as the value of doing so increases exponentially. Indeed, cybercrime is estimated to cost the world $10.5 trillion annually by 2025 (source).
In addition to the explosion in the number of connected devices and users, another security challenge is the push for industrial and network interoperability that increases the movement of data across networks and geological boundaries. All great for business growth and efficiency, but served with an increased number of cyberattack opportunities.
As a result, there’s a growing need to make data security in Industrial IoT a key strategic resilience consideration. And almost no one is sleeping comfortably in the knowledge that their data is completely locked down. In 2022, 96% of surveyed business leaders stated their organisation needed to increase their investment in Industrial security.
If that’s you, let’s unpick some of those potential security threats to Industrial IoT and consider what needs addressing. Also, for those of you already surfing for an eBay ‘build your own bunker’ kit, slow down; let’s start with the good news.
CDM enables customers to remotely access, monitor, troubleshoot, and manage the functionality of their device(s), including device firmware, and patch updates, monitoring usage, and connection.
It gives real-time visibility to issues with devices deployed in hard-to-reach, or physically dangerous locations. It’s simple to use via laptop or any other connected device for access, and from the comfort of home, bunker, or office, Cloudloop provides ease and peace of mind.
One of the noticeable trends in the field of cyber-security is the pace and rate of change. Keeping up with this can be difficult. Securing IIoT infrastructure can be a challenging task for companies and finding the right expertise to support your ambitions can be difficult.
