February 21, 2017

Discerning implications of cybersecurity in a converged IT-OT environment

The industrial environment is currently passing through a key phase, where digitization and the idea of and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is beginning to pervade all areas of industrial operation. This ongoing change is poised expand the complex security needs in the industrial infrastructures of the future.

Industrial cyber security brings together the principles of safety from the OT environment and the ideals of security from the IT environment.

In an effort to shed light on the evolution of cyber security, Frost & Sullivan has published a new research white paper titled “Cyber Security in the Era of Industrial IoT”. The research attempts to define, identify, and contextualise security needs in a connected enterprise. The paper’s key intent is to indicate how the convergence of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) will close the gap between safety and security that currently exists in industrial processes.

Insights from new policy initiatives, industry use cases, and possible solutions presently available in the market have been leveraged. A significant part of this white paper has been entirely devoted to articulating and exploring the best cyber security approach that industrial customers need to establish within their operating environments. This includes a deep dive into the concept of “defense-in-depth” and its implications for a converged IT-OT environment in the future.

The objective of this research endeavor is to emphasise clearly on why we need to move beyond discussions and approach cyber security as an essential and undeniable condition for a connected enterprise.

From Yahoo Finance: Cisco and DHL: IoT will deliver $1.9 trillion boost to supply chain and logistics

If you are wondering just how big our market might get, you'll be interested in this study from logistics leader DHL and Bayshore Networks' reseller partner Cisco. Their IoT Internet of Things Trend Report, published today, reveals huge potential for more efficient and transparent supply chains. The report estimates US$8 trillion will be generated through new connections over next decade.

The Trend Report, which estimates that there will be 50 billion devices connected to the Internet by 2020 compared to 15 billion today, looks at the potential impact this technological revolution will have on business. The value at stake, combination of increased revenues and lower costs that is created or will migrate among companies and industries when new connections are made, reveals the huge potential when the Internet and networks expand their connections to warehousing, freight transportation and other elements of the supply chain. For any organization with a supply chain or logistics operations, IoT will have game-changing consequences, from creating more 'last mile' delivery options for customers, to more efficient warehousing operations and freight transportation.

According to Cisco's economic analysis, IoT will generate US$8 trillion worldwide in Value at Stake over the next decade. This will come from five primary drivers: innovation and revenue (US$2.1 trillion); asset utilization (US$2.1 trillion); supply chain and logistics (US$1.9 trillion); employee productivity improvements (US$1.2 trillion); and enhanced customer and citizen experience (US$700 billion).
