Panelist Stephan Schwichtenberg, shared some interesting data from the pandemic days and told us why enterprises need C-S Mesh. “Cyber Security Mesh is the most practical and affordable approach for dealing with cyber threats in an enterprise-level organization,” he said. He further bonificated the audience with his knowledgeable insights and informed us about the industrial IoT when stating “We had the chance to test our approach on the Fed4Fire testbed and scaled up to more than 2000 nodes. We are currently working on our findings and improvements, and then looking to scale up to higher numbers.”
Richard Jones also added his tremendous intuitions to this digital talk and said “thinking about sustainability…specifically one of the big drivers behind any IoT or connected system project is of course sustainability because the number of organizations has customers who want to buy from companies that respect sustainability.”
While panelist Luis Vale gave some important bits of advice to small organizations to take security measures in the digital era when saying “I think there are two areas typically what we tell clients that start small and make it sure that you have progressive and key-level plan because eventually, you are going to get super high-end platform for security.”
