Fearlessly Implement Cybersecurity at the Edge

With increased information opportunities from Industry 4.0 data flow, cybersecurity risks also can increase. Edge computing is one of the fastest growing areas in the industrial sector as organizations pursue Industry 4.0 opportunities to gain insight from assets at the edge. Over the next few years, IDC projects edge devices will generate more than 51% of global data. While success at the edge offers significant potential, organizations identify cybersecurity as a critical issue to solve before fully pursuing opportunities at the edge. Together, operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) teams must understand best practices and strategies to confidently implement cybersecurity in these new environments, and extend their security posture to edge locations.
