Our modern society is built on automation, control systems and their management. The “Things”, mentioned often in the Internet of Things(IOT) and the Industrial Internet of Things(IIOT), are becoming smarter and more ubiquitous. If you think about all the automation controlled Things that have contributed to your day and try to list them you may be surprised and perhaps a little worried.
Food, Transport, Clothing, Water, Waste, Pharmaceuticals, Logistics, Medical Devices, Energy, Power, Defence, Hospitals, Cashpoints, Beverage Dispensers are just some of the examples of this melange of Things in our personal lives. Critical National Infrastructures are under immense pressure from Government, Regulators, and themselves to enhance the defences, improve monitoring and to re-work the gargantuan quantities of legacy systems.
The rise in attacks on these ‘Things’ has started to concern people. National Infrastructures are investing in improvement plans, many markets are ahead of the game but so much more is to be done. Meanwhile the bad guys get better at the attacking.
