CYBER SECURITY IN THE ERA OF INDUSTRIAL IOT

February 6, 2020

Industrial cyber security has been a topic of much debate over the last decade. Despite the industry’s widespread acknowledgement of its significance, cyber security in the industry continues to be an elusive subject for many. A huge gap exists in understanding the implications of cyber security; however, the subject has been greatly discussed. Interestingly, the industrial environment is currently passing through a key phase, where the idea of Internet of Things (IoT) is beginning to pervade all areas of industrial operation. This ongoing change is poised to expand the complex security needs in the factories of the future.

Tailoring IoT platforms to the requirements of specific use cases

whitePaper | April 13, 2021

The Internet of Things has evolved in the last 10-15 years from a long-term visionary idea to our current reality, present in more and more domains of our everyday lives. Many IoT architectures and platforms are being proposed today by various academic and industrial consortia, in domains as diverse as smart manufacturing, smart homes, smart cities or smart transport, to name just a few. These different IoT platforms have many things in common, as they all rely on connecting some smart sensor and actuator devices to each other and to the Internet, providing value-added services and applications to us, human users, either directly, or in an indirect manner. However, by closely analyzing their structure and operational focus, we can observe that these IoT architectures and platforms have also special features tailored to the requirements of different use cases.
