Securing The Internet of Things – Industrial Control Systems

The Internet of Things (networks of uniquely identifiable endpoints, or "things," that communicate without human interaction using embedded IP connectivity) is the next industrial revolution. Estimates say there will be 24 Billion IoT devices installed by 2020, and $6 Trillion will be invested in IoT devices over the next 5 years. With that kind of growth and investment, protecting each of these “things” and their corresponding interactions with other components, including our networks, will be critical. So where is this...
