As shown in the chart, the demand for connectivity among consumers and businesses worldwide continues to grow rapidly and shows no signs of slowing down. This increasing interconnectedness has become an attractive target for malicious actors, whether sponsored by states or not, who seek to disrupt and exploit it due to the immense potential gains. It is projected that global cybercrime will cost a staggering $10.5 trillion annually by 2025 (source).
Alongside the proliferation of connected devices and users, another security challenge arises from the push for interoperability in industries and networks, facilitating the movement of data across various networks and geographic boundaries. While this advancement benefits business growth and efficiency, it also creates more opportunities for cyberattacks.
Consequently, there is an urgent need to prioritize data security in Industrial IoT as a crucial strategic consideration for resilience. Hardly anyone feels completely at ease knowing that their data is fully protected. In fact, in 2022, 96% of surveyed business leaders acknowledged the necessity to increase investment in industrial security.
If you find yourself in that category, let’s delve into some of the potential security threats to Industrial IoT and explore the areas that require attention. And for those of you who are already contemplating purchasing a DIY bunker kit from eBay, take a breather. We’ll start with some positive news.
Ground Control simplifies this process for customers through the Cloudloop Device Manager (CDM), which is a feature within the Cloudloop ecosystem that also offers subscription and data management tools.
CDM allows customers to remotely access, monitor, troubleshoot, and manage the functionality of their device(s). This includes handling device firmware and patch updates, monitoring usage, and maintaining the connection.
With CDM, customers gain real-time visibility into issues affecting devices deployed in remote, hard-to-reach, or physically hazardous locations. It’s user-friendly and can be accessed via a laptop or any connected device, providing convenience and peace of mind whether you’re working from home, a bunker, or an office. The Cloudloop platform offers simplicity and ease of use.
In the rapidly evolving landscape of cybersecurity, keeping up with the pace and rate of change can be challenging. Securing IIoT infrastructure is a complex task for companies, and finding the right expertise to support your goals can be daunting.
