Cyber-attacks are an increasing threat in the transportation and logistics industry. Transportation and logistics are integral to the world’s economy, and therefore, a valued target for hackers.
According to the US Department of Home Security, the threat of cyber-attacks is very real. Companies who manufacture, transport and facilitate goods have been using connected devices in order to collect data for IoT initiatives, but unbeknownst to them, this technology is giving hackers easy access to company systems and information.
Collecting and analyzing big data has become an important supply chain strategy. Now, it’s also increasingly important to protect the systems generating sensitive information.
