In this fastest growing world, the evolution of technology has also maintained a high pace. As a result of this high pace and rapid change of technology, the use of digital technology and IoT devices in the workplace has also increased. With the increase in digital technology and the number of devices, the number of avenues for a cyber-attack and physical attacks has inherently multiplied. The Corporate sectors and organizational security teams must come up with new strategies to fend off the advanced threats being launched against our increasingly interconnected digital infrastructure and security systems. Many of us are using interconnected spy cams to cover the footage in one place to watch it on another just because of advancements in technology in past years. As well as, to have the safest surveillance by the use of the latest security systems. Similarly, software and virus tools are also continuously designed to manage cyber-attacks which are at a peak in the current time.

Here, we take a look at where the industry may be headed in the future.

Future of Interconnected Security

In the future, the interconnected security systems will be based on organizational convergence, technological convergence, and operational convergence.

Organizational Convergence 

Nowadays, with the advancements many enterprises are converging their operations into a combined Chief Information Security Officer role, bringing together cyber and physical security strategies. The strong integration between IT network security and physical security has formed. This junction has pushed the need for combined security operation centers, or “SOCs,” which are made possible by the technological junction of digital devices.

Technological Convergence

Because of the organizational convergence, companies are looking for the latest technological elements which could enable them to have the unified management of security and risk. Due to the introduction of 5G, organizations can scale security efforts more effectively. Furthermore, due to the improved software technology the security operations can be transferred to the cloud easily. Now the use of operating hardware on disparate systems is allowing enterprises to achieve the highest level of operative security.

Operational Convergence

When the organizational structures have joined to aid effective, the top-down security strategies are assured, and the necessary technological tools have been made available. The next important thing is to improve industry standards, workflows, and processes to enable operational convergence properly. With the advancement in systems, the operational convergence is also stepping ahead. This also ensures that all the operations are unified and up to date as well as being able to execute on the strategy of convergence.

Beyond the convergence

Beyond the convergence of these areas of security, one of the marker convergence Era has been the shifted away from PSIM solutions to the use of Converged Security and Information Management, or “CSIM,” solutions. The CSIM has increased the ranges of PSIM software beyond physical security by capturing and correlating data from multiple IT-security and information management systems. This advanced approach to security enables Smart City and IoT applications, as well as many other use cases such as supply-chain systems, logistics management, and engineering.

Future of IoT Era 

Currently, around 26 billion devices are connected to the internet which is worth a total of nearly $1.7 trillion. This number is almost double the number of connected devices in the past five years. Now with every passing day, the number of connected devices is increasing with is equipped with web connectivity. It is estimated that almost 98 percent of cars will also be connected to the internet by next year. 

The IoT devices are classy, luxurious and data correlation technology-oriented that will go beyond real-time monitoring and begin using predictive analytics. Companies will invest more in such resources that will go beyond the current use of technologies. They will be more reactive to manage operational, technological, organizational, and infrastructural risks.

Not only this, but the use of IoT security will also keep on growing even in the expansions of various other projects life city projects, expansion projects, and many other projects which are underway internationally for a while now.


Anticipating to the remainder of this current year and the coming years, we are sure to see the tendency towards more sophisticated and interconnected security systems, enabled by technology and IoT continue. As the business moves steadily towards the use of better, more complete tools, devices, techniques, and strategies are there to manage organizational security. So the manners through which we can manage both the physical and digital, security dangers are more under concern. The coming era is more filled with the technological and security aspects to groom with high-security concerns under strong observations.
