The Digital Security sector offers integrated coverage of digital security technologies — from information technologies to operational control processes. With end-to-end security research from the silicon, all the way up to cyber-based and IoT applications, the sector focuses on technology trends, in addition to industry-specific implementation. Specifically, the technology research covers hardware, packaging, device, appliances, software, platform, networks, and services for organizations, as well as for specific industries such as finance, government, defense, healthcare, energy, transport, and of course telecommunication.
