The Industrial Internet Consortium has published the Industrial Internet Security Framework (IISF). According to the IIC, the IISF delivers security from business, functional and implementation perspectives. It helps business managers within industrial organizations make informed decisions based on well-designed risk assessments.
The IISF breaks the industrial space down into three roles—the component builders, the system builders and the operational users. This will give users the chance to inspect each aspect of the industrial system environment, and evaluate security as a system.
“Today, many industrial systems simply do not have adequate security in place,” said Dr. Richard Soley, executive director, IIC. “The level of security found in the consumer Internet just won’t do for the Industrial Internet. In order to add security to an industrial system, you must make sure it won’t interfere with safety and reliability requirements. The IISF explores solutions to industrial problems that have plagued the industry for years. The IIC is also putting the IISF vision into practice in our testbed program.”
