Hitachi Review

Highlight

THE social infrastructure that underpins daily life and business is required to ensure service continuity even during times of difficulty. Many different types of services, including government, finance, and healthcare as well as electric power, gas, water, and railways, are expected to provide 24-hour/365-day uninterrupted operation, or at least to maintain a bare minimum of essential services at all times. Social infrastructure systems are steadily advancing and seeking to improve efficiency, increasingly operating over wide areas, with interoperation between different providers and use of systems based on the Internet of Things (IoT). Meanwhile, it is also true that the incidence of damage-causing attacks on social infrastructure systems is rising, with an increase in the number of terroristic incidents taking place overseas and a greater diversity of cyber-attacks.
