As you integrate the Internet of Things with your organization’s existing IT infrastructure, you are exponentially expanding your organizational footprint, and your risk, to potentially billions of sensors, devices, and other smart objects. Given the breadth this convergence, your customers and your organization can be significantly exposed to security challenges.
Informational technology and operational networks are have distinct security needs, since they are managed with different priorities in mind. Data protection and confidentiality are key to the IT network. In contrast, the operational network focuses on secure physical access. Both data security and physical access need to both be addressed to ensure that your IoT platforms remain uncompromised. With the convergence of these two environments, IoT security requires a new approach that combines physical and data security components, resulting in protection from the outside, as well as the inside.
