Manufacturers continue to leverage the opportunities and value that connected and data-driven technologies add to their production systems and the products and services they deliver to market.
However, the very technologies that enable and underpin modern production processes also expose manufacturers to new risks and challenges.
Connected equipment and devices are primary sources of data, and due to factors such as legacy systems and an emphasis on functionality over security, they are often designed and integrated without suitable security built-in. Therefore, they become targets for malicious activity.
As Europe´s manufacturing industry transitions to more agile and sophisticated data-driven production systems, it becomes increasingly necessary for manufacturers to take a ‘secure by design’ approach to the development of their products.
This means paying close attention to processes, equipment and supply chains, in addition to corporate information management.
In today’s digital world, no company in any industry can ignore the risks of cyberattacks. Cybersecurity is a must, especially for sectors like manufacturing, which has less experience in the area.
Industry 4.0 has many advantages, but companies need to ensure they secure these technologies.
