Industry 4.0 - The Industrial Internet of Things

Join the National Cyber Security Alliance and Trend Micro during  National Critical Infrastructure Month, where we’ll be discussing  Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

The industrial internet of things (IIoT) refers to the extension and  use of the internet of things (IoT) in industrial sectors and  applications. The IIoT encompasses industrial applications, including:  robotics, medical devices, and software-defined production processes.  The IIoT goes beyond the normal consumer devices and internetworking of  physical devices usually associated with the Internet of Things (IoT).  What makes it distinct, in particular, is the intersection of  information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT). OT refers  to the networking of operational processes and industrial control  systems (ICSs).

Though the interconnectedness provided by IIoT enables faster and  more efficient processes, it can also expose industries to threats.

During this hour, experts from Trend Micro will provide an overview of:

  • The current state of IIoT use in the Industry 4.0 era

  • Current threats targeting connected industrial sectors and applications

  • How to mitigate Industry 4.0 threats.

We’ll pay particular attention to how small and medium-sized  businesses are impacted by IIoT, and what steps they can take to enhance  their security.
