William Saito: Industry 4.0, IoT and Security By Design


During the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting of the New Champions, taking place this week in Tianjin, China, about 1,500 policy makers and experts from more than 90 countries are gathering to discuss Industry 4.0.

William Saito, Vice Chairman, Japan, for Palo Alto Networks, explains in his latest column for the World Economic Forum that the potential for Industry 4.0 — specifically how technologies such as cloud computing and big data join with the Internet of Things and algorithms from machine learning to govern new processes — requires preventive security by design, not as an add-on. 

“It’s worth remembering,” notes William, “that cloud services, big data, IoT, block chain, AI, fin tech and all the other buzzwords are possible not only because of the Internet, but because of security.”
