Integration of IoT, AI in Industry 4.0 poses risks for private networks

Integrating IoT, AI and big data in Industry 4.0 poses significant security challenges for private 5G networks, increasing the attack surface due to numerous devices and complex networks, according to Mauricio Sanchez, senior director of enterprise security and networking research at Dell’Oro Group.

“Such convergence allows for sophisticated attacks, threatening data privacy and integrity. Interconnectivity with public networks adds risks, with vulnerabilities potentially spreading across networks. The global supply chain’s role in these technologies introduces additional security concerns; a single breach can affect the entire network. With new technologies constantly emerging, vigilance and regular updates in security measures are crucial,” said Sanchez.
