Security Framework Overview

Every Industrial IoT system  demands robust security. Failure can be extremely serious. The Industrial  Internet Consortium recently published the Industrial Internet Security  Framework that provided actionable advice on how to make a system secure.  This involves addressing the broader question of how to make systems  trustworthy (security, safety, resilience, reliability and privacy) and then  assessing the threats and the risks. Then we need to make the system secure  to an appropriate level. This presentation provides an overview of this  seminal work.
