Hitachi Review

Highlight

The networking of social infrastructure in recent years has led to greater security risks in the systems used in this infrastructure. In response to these increased risks, international standardization bodies and other industry organizations are working on formulating security requirements for systems. Hitachi uses the Hitachi system security concept as a basis for dealing with the requirements demanded of social infrastructure, which include responding to trends in cyber-attacks and long-term operation, and has been engaging in studies at the IEC. These requirements were presented in a whitepaper entitled “Factory of the future” that describes how factories will look in the future and the technology they will require, and are currently being adopted. In the future, advances in the IoT and elsewhere will make security even more important. Hitachi intends to supply security solutions to create secure social infrastructure that everyone can use with confidence.
