Critical Infrastructure and the Internet of Things

Jurnal · Aug 2017 with 65 Reads


Critical infrastructure systems –– the assets and networks, be they physical or virtual, underpinning the functioning of an economy and society –– determine the security, prosperity, well-being and resilience of an entire nation. In this regard, the Internet of Things (IoT) is an important concept embedded within a larger spectrum of networked products and digital sensors that has caused an explosion of applications, marking a fundamental shift in the way human beings interact with the Internet, and amplifying both opportunities and challenges — in particular with respect to critical infrastructure — across the globe. The IoT relies on progress in computing power and information technology (IT) to offer possibilities hitherto inconceivable: the IoT revolution –– or the large-scale implementation of the IoT –– is driving market opportunities and new paradigms in business and policy models each day, and transforming basic aspects of daily life. The paper creates a framework to navigate the dialogue surrounding critical infrastructure and the IoT, addressing the emerging risks to critical infrastructure with the rise of the IoT, and toward explaining cyber threats to business and governments in the face of an expanding IoT. Presenting an overview of the basics of IoT and the technical processes and issues raised by it, and through landmark examples and references, a set of recommendations to overcome these risks are presented to create an informational resource regarding this growing pertinent conversation in light of competing information and forecasts.
