An increasingly connected world needs trusted environments. Yet, a system is only as secure as its weakest link. Supporting secure connectivity is the most important first step in our industry’s ongoing marathon to harness the full potential of the IIoT. With 95 percent of CIOs expecting cybersecurity threats to increase and impact their organizations, the need for partnerships across industries and communities to innovate and build safer and more secure technologies is essential.
We’ve taken a proactive and consistent enterprise-wide approach to cybersecurity. This “defense in depth” approach provides our customers with confidence that our solutions meet rigorous testing standards to operate securely worldwide throughout their entire lifecycle. And our cybersecurity program has added many industry firsts that give our customers an important advantage.
To support a more cybersecure world for everyone, we’re partnering with organizations within our industry and beyond. Collaborations across academia and industry are a core aspect of our cybersecurity approach. Recently, we expanded our partner ecosystem for cybersecurity and are excited to announce the addition of Cybersecurity Tech Accord to our partner network.
Cybersecurity collaboration unites industries, government and community
We see an essential need for a global conformance assessment standard for cybersecurity. Connected products must be validated with global standards that can be applied across industries. It’s essential for all of us—businesses, communities and governments—to work together to share best practices and pioneer a collection of global cybersecurity standards.
