Abstract: With the growing number of connected devices to the internet every day, and the rapid development and deployment of internet of things (IoT), the number of security threats and vulnerabilities posed to these are also increased. Also, the use of IoT in the industry has become a major requirement for digitalisation transformation and high-priority business demand to increase productivity and profitability. The industrial internet of things (IIoT) is concerned with making industrial environments more connected and thus smarter. However, this transformation comes with a huge number of threats that should be addressed. The primary goal of this research paper is to provide a technical solution as well as a holistic approach (framework) of security concerns. This will be supported by a number of non-technical factors to build a resilient cybersecurity model to effectively and efficiently mitigate cybersecurity threats.
