Τίτλος: Integrating IT and OT: cybersecurity challenges in industry 4.0
Περίληψη: Industry 4.0, commonly referred to as the 4th industrial revolution, pertains to the current trend of automation and data exchange in industry, through the development, use and integration of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of things, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and other enabling technologies. This evolution is expected to bring tremendous benefits in the economy, including improved productivity and efficiency, better flexibility and agility, and increased profitability. However, it also comes with increased cyber security risks, primarily deriving from the integration of information technology and operational technology. Thus, as in all cases of a major shift in computing paradigms, a number of cyber security challenges arise, that cannot be addressed by simply porting solutions from other domains. In this talk an overview of such challenges, current practices for addressing them, as well as areas open for research in the field will be provided.
