Why is cybersecurity so often overlooked by Operational Technology engineers? The answer can be traced to four common myths. Here, we explore why these four misconceptions are no longer true in today’s highly interconnected world and discuss the differences between IT and OT networks, and share some best practice guidelines to help your organization successfully overcome these IT-OT differences and transition to IIoT or Industry 4.0 systems.
When it involves the safety of residents, data needs to be reliable and easily accessed – which is where a 0G network comes in. IoT connectivity options like 0G provide a cost-efficient, low-power and user-friendly experience, with simple integration for public safety officials looking to stay up-to-date and secure. Here are some ways IoT devices running on a 0G network can be used to aid officials, allowing for better public safety.
Seniors and millennials may be more alike than many believe - they are both connecting to a similar number of Internet of Things devices (at least 7 Wi-Fi devices) and both engaging in similar, risky online behaviors, reveals a new Generali Global Assistance and the Identity Theft Resource Center study.
The use of IP-based access control solutions to manage employee comings and goings has dramatically increased in recent years. The Internet of Things (IoT) has added connectivity to an abundance of devices that better facilitate access which has users – and potential users – rightfully concerned about the security of these newer technologies.
When California Governor Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 327 on September 28, California became the first state to enact legislation expressly governing cybersecurity measures that must be employed by manufacturers of Internet-connected “smart” devices, collectively known as the Internet of Things (IoT). The law, to be codified at California Civil Code Sections 1798.91.04–06, became effective on January 1, 2020.
ON DEMAND: The term “Internet of Things” is becoming increasingly common in the vocabulary of IT and physical security professionals. While IoT may seem like a foreign concept, it’s probably more familiar than you realize. Of the 17.5 million petabytes of data generated by IoT applications, 84% comes from video surveillance! Additional IoT data is generated by integrated security sensors, access control systems and other physical security applications.
