Cybersecurity Top Findings & Key Takeaways

Cybersecurity impacts every ICT domain. In the following we consider the CONCORDIA taxonomy of domains:
  • Device/IoT-Centric Security: Internet of Things (IoT) can be defined as “the networked interconnection of everyday objects, equipped with ubiquitous intelligence”[1]. IoT, edge computing, and smart devices are changing the environment in many ways, including smart transportation, sustainable mobility, smart cities, e-health, smart vehicles, and UAVs, just to name the few. The exponential growth of connected devices (from minuscule sensors to bigger machines), which, according to Intel[2] are expected to reach 200 billion by 2020, is revolutionizing current IT systems. The existence of billions of resource-constrained devices connected to the Internet introduces fundamental risks that can threaten users’ life and personal sphere.
