IISF Technical Report

Cyber-security is a threat that does not discriminate. As a result, enterprises large and small are at risk of being attacked from unexpected sources both inside and outside the system, whether intended or accidental. It represents a major threat to world safety and security. The Industry IoT Consortium believes that addressing this challenge is critical to the success of the Industrial IoT, Industrie 4.0 and the Industrial Internet revolution. To that end, IIC members have developed a common security framework and an approach to assess cybersecurity in Industrial Internet of Things systems.

A true collaborative project in every sense of the word, The Industrial Internet Security Framework (IISF) is the most in-depth cross-industry-focused security framework comprising expert vision, experience and security best practices. It reflects thousands of hours of knowledge and experiences from security experts, collected, researched and evaluated for the benefit of all IIoT system deployments.
