The IIoT network involves smart sensors, actuators, and technologies extending IoT capabilities across industrial sectors. With the rapid development in connected technology and communications in industrial applications, IIoT networks and devices are increasingly integrated into less secure physical environments. Anomaly detection in IIoT is crucial for cybersecurity. This paper proposes a novel anomaly detection model for IIoT systems, leveraging a hybrid deep learning (DL) model. The hybrid DL approach combines Gated Recurrent Units (GRU) and Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) for anomaly detection in IoT edge computing. The proposed CNN+GRU model achieves a notable 94.94% accuracy, underscoring the importance of careful model selection for IIoT anomaly detection. The paper suggests exploring XGBoost with hybrid CNN+GRU architectures as a future direction for high accuracy in complex IIoT contexts. The Experimental results indicate a 96.41% accuracy, excelling in metrics like false alarm rate (FAR), recall, precision, and F1score. Based on these findings, we recommend future researchers consider advanced hybrid architectures and enhance efficiency using XGBoost with hybrid CNN+GRU. This approach holds promise for significant contributions to IIoT systems' security and Performance evolution.
