Overview

The industrial internet of things is helping businesses become more efficient and reliable in their operations. By facilitating the convergence of information technology and operational technology, it’s possible to improve systems integration in production, enhance visibility in supply chains and strengthen control of physical infrastructure. Sectors like manufacturing, energy and transport are increasingly dependent on IIoT solutions. 

But although adoption of IIoT can have many benefits for businesses, it also exposes them to another layer of cyber-threats, potentially putting people, products and processes in danger. Connected devices that support production lines or distribution could be prime targets for malicious software designed to interrupt operations.

This Digital Dialogue, organised by Financial Times Live in partnership with Lloyd’s Register Foundation, will discuss the evolving impact of industrial cyberattacks on operational security, human safety, productivity and other crucial areas of business. CEOs, COOs, CIOs and other decision-makers will benefit from expert insights on the challenges of securing the Industrial Internet of Things with ideas to escalate awareness and action.
