What is Command Center?
A command center enables an organization to function as designed, to perform day-to-day operations regardless of what is happening around it, in a manner in which no one realizes it is there but everyone knows who is in charge when there is trouble.
Conceptually, a command center is a source of leadership and guidance to ensure that service and order is maintained, rather than an information center or help desk. Its tasks are achieved by monitoring the environment and reacting to events, from the relatively harmless to a major crisis, using predefined procedures.
What it takes to build a next-gen command center and why you should do it
A command center can serve as a hub for all of your business' critical data so that it can be accessed by every department.
As customer experience rapidly supersedes price and product to become the single most important differentiator for businesses, turning global data into meaningful insights has emerged as a critical imperative.
For this, organizations must adopt a global command center model wherein a centralized command center serves as the hub for organizational data aggregation and processing.
However, most organizations have separate command centers for different segments of business such as network, applications, facilities, business, cloud, service desk, and data centers.
Each command center comprises of its own service owners, tools, technologies, and processes – with little or no interaction between them.
This could lead to a potential situation where a network command center does not have information about power outages in other command centers such as applications, cloud or facilities.
This, in turn, can have a cascading impact on the availability of multiple servers and applications, and ultimately, the business as a whole. Such a setup also hinders service desk operations by slowing down the exchange of information with the IT service desk.
How can businesses bridge this gap and ensure errors are averted proactively, or at least, detected early?
Integration is the key to superior insights
Today businesses have vast amounts and varied types of data – IoT data from smart sensors, consumer, business, IT, facilities, as well as marketing and customer data. In the future, the volume, variety and sources of data is expected to increase even further.
The biggest challenge for companies of the future will not be data collection but the aggregation, processing and analysis of this vast amount of data at a centralized command center.
Companies need a solution to interpret data, perform data correlation, detect anomalies, trends and patterns, and present the insights back to a single command center (which may have specialized groups such as network command center and others) to derive a single version of the truth.
Command center integration and consolidation can significantly improve businesses’ ability to predict outages and disruptions, and take remedial decisions quickly and intelligently, minimizing operational and financial impact.
The biggest benefit of implementing a global command center operating model is that it enables organizations to consistently deliver high quality customer experience across the entire life cycle while simultaneously optimizing cost to serve.

Security Threat in Internet of Things
The Internet of Thing (IoT) connects smart devices from all over the world through the Internet and allow for interaction between people and things on a global scale. The interconnection of massive devices has made networks more open, complex and diversified. However, the advent of IoT also brings security challenges.
In addition to network security threats, there are still some special security issues in the IoT. This is due to the fact that the IoT is composed of a large number of unattended devices or perceptive nodes, which are not consistently maintained. Based on the IoT framework, security threats in the IoT can be categorized as perception-layer threats, transport-layer threats, and application-layer threats:
The perception layer is the physical layer
The network layer is responsible for connecting and facilitating communications between other IoT devices, network devices and servers.
The application layer is responsible for interfacing with users by accepting and providing data to those users.
Perception Layer Threats:
IoT asset that lack physical protection are susceptible to theft and damage and can easily to be accessed without authorization. Outdoor devices and distributed installations must have the appropriate physical controls to prevent physical attack, tampering, and counterfeiting.
Sensitive information that is not properly encrypted and secure could be read and possible altered. This includes data at rest (stored on the device) and data is transit (moving across a network).
In many IoT devices, default username and password are used of installation, however if end user do not change from those default, it gives attackers an easy way to gain access to the device. A similar attack can be successful if the end user creates weak, easily guessed password. Some IoT devices use test and debug ports in the firmware, prior to releasing to the public. If these ports are not closed, it can give an attacker a means for executing code, and potentially taking complete control of the device.
All computers, including all IoT devices, will require security updates and sometime feature update from time to time. These updates are attractive target for attackers by either pretending to be an official update for tricking a user into installing a malicious update, or trying to embed malicious code into valid update. To prevent this, computer and IoT vendor need to have a code verification process to ensure that only valid code from the vendor can run on that hardware. Without this verification, malware installation is possible.
When IoT is manufactured, it is installed with the latest code, however by the time an end user install the device, the code may outdated and require software updates and patches. Unless there is process for automated patching, many IoT devices are left vulnerable to attack that have already been patched by the vendor because the end user did not know, or remember, to manually patch the device regularly.
If an attacker is successful is gaining access to an IoT device, It is likely that they will install malicious software, or malware, on that system. The type of malware that is typically installed on the IoT devices is called Trojan Horse malware and it gives the attacker a remote control of the IoT device's computing resources. Once the attacker has access to enough devices (thousands, or tens of thousands, or more) the create something called a botnet. The attacker is usually not interested in the data on the IoT device, rather, they want to use the computer in the IoT device as part of their botnet Internet weapon. When the attacker wants to attack a website or anything connected to the Internet, they can tell all of the botnet-infected devices to attack at the same time.
Some famous examples of botnet include Mirai, Bashlite, Lizkebab, Torlus and Gafgyt, to name just a few, which can cause large-scaled distributed Deniel of Services, or DDoS attacks. The Mirai botnet was used to take down and slow down parts of the Internet by infecting IoT devices, including home routers, video surveillance cameras and video recorders.
Transport Layer Threats
Attacker can gain unauthorized access to a network that uses wireless networks by exploiting Wireless protocol vulnerabilities. For example, weak authentication may allow an attacker to connect to the network and watch and record all network traffic.
If an attacker can gain unauthorized access to a network, he or she can monitor that network traffic and if it is not encrypted, they can see all of the data as it traverses the network. Unencrypted communication is prone to hijacking, repeating, tampering, and eavesdropping by an attacker.
During communication between IoT devices, cloud hosting servers, and mobile devices, attacker can access sensitive data if the network traffic is not encrypted.
When a device communicate through a network, the data collected by an attacker may be altered by attackers if there is no verification mechanism. This is called a man-in-the-middle attack.
Application Layer Threats
There are difficulties in managing the update process and security of the various and scattered devices managed by the platform layer.
Users account need to be unique for each person and account credentials must not be shared. If accounts credential are shared, there is no individual accountability and may result in leakage of sensitive data, and cause a privacy and security breach.
Operating systems allow humans and applications to run on hardware. Most IoT devices run Linux, Windows, Android and iOS as their operating system. The majority of large-scale networks attack focus on exploiting known vulnerabilities in operating systems that have not been patched.
The application layer manages a large volume of data, which is prone to leakage if not encrypted.
The application layer has significantly more components than IoT devices do. If those components are not update properly in time, unpatched vulnerabilities may exist and be easily exploited.
Security configuration that have not been updated or examined for a long time may have configuration issues that can be exploited by network attackers.
Unofficial software that is updated without verification may have vulnerabilities, or the software itself may be malicious.
After considering the many hidden security risks in the IoT environment, as well as the complexities of computational capabilities and the complex hardware and software environment, our solution comes with end-to-end security to ascertain the most secure security level.
