Experts predict that the Internet of Things will disrupt entire industries and instigate sweeping changes in the way of doing business for years to come. And while there are enormous benefits in efficiency and economy, these benefits are not without risks to privacy and security. The need for standards and protocols that allow machine-to-machine communication and data sharing is clear. The need for security, privacy and system assurance standards is becoming clearer.
This joint presentation by the Object Management Group® (OMG®) and the Industrial Internet Consortium® (IIC) will take a closer look at some of the challenges and opportunities presented by the Industrial Internet of Things.
OMG has been active in IIoT standardization from long before “IIoT” became an industry buzzword. Many OMG standards are proving integral to IIoT efforts around the globe; DDS™ (Data Distribution Service™), SysML™ (Systems Modeling Language™) and IFML™ (Interaction Flow Modeling Language™) are contributing to the improved productivity, major cost savings, and streamlined processes of the Industrial Internet.
OMG’s Systems Assurance Task Force (SysA TF) works on standards that ensure the reliability, safety and security of IIoT systems to help the Industrial Internet of Things deliver on its promise without succumbing to the threats it faces. In addition, the OMG-managed Consortium for IT Software Quality™ (CISQ™) specifies how to measure quality points including reliability and security that are vital to the systems and processes of the Industrial Internet.
Dr. Bill Curtis, CISQ Executive Director, is speaking at this event: Software Security Issues in the Industrial Internet.
