Cybersecurity Solutions for the Manufacturing Industry
As the industry is moving towards a Digital Supply Chain (commonly known as Industry 4.0), the risks and the severity of a cyber attack are growing exponentially. These automated systems controlling the supply chain are often assumed to be secure, as they have no direct connection to the internet, but this has proven to be a misconception.
Modern hackers seek to find a weak entry point in one of your Internet-facing systems/networks/clouds/applications which allows them to gain acces to and infect other internal systems, affecting the productivity of your production line – in some cases even halting the production completely. Due to the constant technological evolution of the supply chain, vulnerabilities are often left open and unknown to the development team, whose focus is mainly on improving features and optimizing technological innovations. This is why it is fundamental to regularly test your industrial systems, as well as your internet-facing systems and applications to identify and correct your vulnerabilities before an attacker exploits them.
