Security leaders have been discussing the convergence of cybersecurity and physical security for years.
Cybersecurity is critical for any system that exists online - which is about every system in existence today. To provide some perspective about how many physical and digital components are connected to the Internet, here is some research. In 2019, the number of active Internet of Things (IoT) devices reached 26.66 billion, up from 7 billion IoT devices in 2018 . Every second, there are 127 new IoT devices connected to the Internet, creating a larger attack surface, which threat actors can leverage to take control of and exploit.
This presentation provides an overview of the cyber and physical risk.
