In Industrial Cybersecurity, Trust is Critical

The world of industrial manufacturing is rapidly evolving, as the data available through smart devices, sensors and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) explodes

Industrial organizations across multiple sectors are taking advantage of these capabilities to unlock valuable insights within their data. Unfortunately, hackers are evolving as well, so industrial cybersecurity is critical.

The industry has recognized this and is responding to these potential threats – in a recent study done by BDO USA, 92 percent of manufacturers cited cybersecurity concerns in their SEC filings. As manufacturers adapt to both the benefits and threats of the IIoT, it’s critical that they explore solutions that unlock the convenience of the IIoT while ensuring data security.

In this Automation World interview Saadi Kermani explains the value of holistic cybersecurity in a cloud first, mobile first world and the balance between security and ease of use
