In today’s connected world, manufacturers are embracing automation and the Internet of Things (IoT) or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) for competitive advantage. The merging of the cyber and physical worlds means improved efficiency, but it also means exposing your critical manufacturing infrastructure to cyber risk. In fact, according to an independent ICS study, nearly 6 in 10 organizations using SCADA or ICS industrial control systems have experienced a breach in those systems in the past year.
From IP-related tasks such as research, design and prototyping through to connected processes such as production, distribution and delivery, legacy and modern manufacturing systems – once protected by an air gap – are now connected to the network. The need for end-to-end security is greater than ever.
Listen in to this lively discussion from a panel cybersecurity experts and thought leaders as they break down the top trends impacting today’s manufacturers security strategy, including IT and OT convergence, connected intelligent manufacturing and workforce dynamics.
In light of Industry 4.0, we’ll examine three key ingredients needed in your cybersecurity strategy – visibility, control, and situational awareness – and their impact on the future of digital manufacturing.
