understanding data gravity and its impact on IT infrastructure is a difference-maker
Data gravity, or the propensity for bodies of data to draw an expanding swath of applications and services into closer proximity, has been identified as a key megatrend impacting enterprises and service providers over the next decade, according to recently published research.  Data gravity may affect an enterprise's ability to innovate, secure customer experiences, and even deliver financial results on a global scale.  The Data Gravity Index™ measures the creation, aggregation and private exchange of enterprise data and examines its impact on the Forbes Global 2000.

The presence of IoT devices in the everyday life brings new cybersecurity threats affecting critical infrastructures as part of smart cities. To cope with this issue, the development of a cybersecurity certification framework represents an ambitious initiative, which has attracted an increasing interest from academia, industry and government institutions. However, beyond well-known issues related to expensiveness and flexibility of current solutions, the certification approach must address the dynamic and heterogeneous nature of IoT-enabled environments. In order to address such requirements, this work proposes an architectural framework that aims to provide a precise view of the involved concepts and processes based on security assessment and testing methodologies. While nowadays there is no silver bullet integrated solution, our approach is based on standards and specific technologies currently used in the scope of European initiatives, in order to promote a more standardized vision of a cybersecurity certification framework for the IoT.
