IoT and IIoT Security Survey

What More Connected Devices Mean for Industrial Security


How many internet of things (IoT) and industrial internet-of-things (IIoT) devices connect to your network? In particular, the increased proliferation of connected devices in the industrial space brings about growing concerns for OT operators charged with keeping their networks compliant and safe from the impacts of cyberattacks or human error.

So what is the current state of IIoT cybersecurity across disparate industrial verticals like manufacturing, energy, agriculture, pharmaceutical, chemical, and beyond? Tripwire and Dimensional Research surveyed hundreds of cybersecurity professionals who contend with mounting quantities of IoT and IIoT devices to find out what issues they face.

The survey found that 99 percent face challenges around securing their connected devices, and 88 percent report that they don’t currently have adequate resources to overcome those challenges. Download the full report to learn more about the state of IIoT cybersecurity, specifically:
