The Cyber Signals Report which features IoT and its operational technology (OT) highlights the rise of cyber risks to critical infrastructure. The International Data Corporation (IDC) estimates there will be 41.6 billion connected IoT devices by 2025, a growth rate higher than traditional IT equipment. Although security of IT equipment has strengthened in recent years, IoT and OT device security has not kept pace, and threat actors are exploiting these devices.
According to Microsoft, it has identified unpatched, high-severity vulnerabilities in 75% of the most common industrial controllers in customer OT networks.
Vasu Jakkal, corporate vice president, security, compliance, identity, and management at Microsoft, said: “As OT systems underpinning energy, transportation, and other infrastructures become increasingly connected to IT systems, the risk of disruption and damage grows as boundaries blur between these formerly separated worlds. For businesses and infrastructure operators across industries, the defensive imperatives are gaining total visibility over connected systems and weighing evolving risks and dependencies.”
