Industry X presents its own set of inherent security risks. Highly connected and automated sites produce and store staggering amounts of data. IDC estimates that 175 zettabytes of data worldwide by 2025. That amount of data stored on discs would reach the moon 23 times and a huge amount of this is real-time IoT data. Organisations risk opening themselves up to cyber-attacks and hacks that threaten their ever more connected systems, leaving sensitive data vulnerable and exposing critical assets such as factories and utilities. Security must be at the forefront as industries digitise and transform themselves in the era of Industry X.
Attend this session for a discussion on practical steps to ensure that organisations are safeguarding devices, data and systems from potential threats.
