IIoT cybersecurity for travel companies: Protecting travel operations

Many travel providers rely on Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions to manage complex operations, yet one third of cybersecurity incidents at travel companies are IIoT related. Without adequate protection, travel operations are vulnerable to cyber attacks that can trigger catastrophic consequences.

In cooperation with IBM’s Institute for Business Value, we surveyed 300 IT and OT leaders responsible for the security of their organisations’ IIoT environments and deployments, including 75 from travel and 225 from transportation companies. All of the companies surveyed have deployed IIoT applications to support supply chain and logistics processes.

To determine what makes some companies more secure and cyber resilient, we benchmarked their IIoT cybersecurity performance and maturity using an online survey. This methodology allowed us to identify the top security performers as those performing in the 80th percentile.
