The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a network of devices used in industrial applications to transfer data and enhance manufacturing and industrial processes.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) introduces a whole new set of
security risks to a manufacturing organization.
The connectivity that allows IIoT to deliver amazing amounts of data, often in real-time, also gives potential access to critical data and devices to hackers.
The IIoT has some of the same security issues as the consumer Internet of Things, such as weak passwords or software bugs that cannot be easily repaired. Notably, some companies are connecting their production lines and power grids to the internet to increase efficiency. Manufacturing companies with insecure networks should be vigilant against widespread cyber attacks, which could harm facility equipment and create the potential for espionage.
The frightening fact is that only about
one-third of industrial companies
have even started to address this problem with security professionals or specialists. Additionally, the majority of these companies say they don’t have the staff expertise to manage IIoT security issues.
So where do you begin to address these IIoT security issues? Industrial organizations should look at the following in order to protect their businesses.
These and other security issues can be challenging, according to Gartner, simply because organizations are having less control of the hardware and software systems deployed in their businesses. Working with your CMMS providers to address security issues together may be one possible solution.
As more and more companies take advantage of IIoT to move toward more efficient
technologies, they must bring along security measures at the same time. In addition, the industry as a whole should begin to address the broader issue of security as well - providing tools, guidelines, resources, and assistance for industrial companies around the country.
