Physical and Cyber Security Convergence
According to research by Intel IDC, the number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices are growing exponentially, from 2 billion IoT devices in 2006 to a projected 200 billion by 2020. It means every human being on the world will own an average 26 smart objects. Yet, lack of convergence will result in failings to provide both secure physical and cyber environment in the long term.
As the boundaries between physical and cyber security continue to blur, it is important for future generations to understand extensively the challenge and develop inter-related skills.
The convergent approach should minimize the skills gap between the two fields and pave the way for a mutual understanding, awareness and knowledge of both sectors.
TenIntelligence, as a leading influence in the security sector, have the knowledge and experience to share with the security experts of the future. We are delighted to meet the students from different courses at the University of Kent and hopefully have inspired, encouraged and educated the students to take on responsibility in building a more secure online environment for everyone.
