A safe and secure manufacturing industry is critical to the nation’s prosperity and functioning. Given the convergence of internet technology and operating technology (IT/OT) and the introduction of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), the future of manufacturing is tied to technology. As a result, cybersecurity challenges are growing and becoming more intricate.
Meet Manufacturing’s Complex Enterprise Security Challenges
Cyber Risk Changing for Manufacturing
Increasingly interconnected networks may have differing levels of security, which can introduce a new route for platform-wide compromise. There is also the potential for Supply Chain risks through vendors that have poor cybersecurity measures in place. Such vulnerabilities can be exploited by cyber criminals or nation states for the purposes of damage, destruction, or theft.
The long-standing challenge of protecting intellectual property (IP) and trade secrets is now heightened by the need for rapid innovation in the face of new threat vectors.
