The Industrial Internet Consortium's Security Working Group

The IIC Places a High Priority on Trustworthy and Secure IIoT Platforms

The IIC's Security Working Group was created to develop a common security framework and a rigorous methodology to assess and develop trustworthy Industrial Internet Systems.

This is a direct reflection of the high priority placed by IIC members on collaboratively delivering trustworthy and secure IIoT platforms that support digital transformation, smart manufacturing, digital twins, secure communications, and supply chain assurance.

The Security Working Group takes a collaborative approach to developing technical frameworks, industry best practices, and practical guidance to help industrial companies accelerate their adoption of IIoT. The objectives of the Security Working Group are to:

  1. Promote the importance of developing and implementing trustworthy IIoT systems
  2. Develop technical IIoT security frameworks and best practices
  3. Accelerate the adoption of secure IIoT
