As we digitize manufacturing processes, create a digital thread connecting every phase of a product’s lifecycle, and harvest data from all our machines and tools via the Internet of Things, we open the door to a growing number of security threats and create additional attack vectors for a virtual Pandora’s Box of new risks - from disruption of manufacturing processes to theft of information and intellectual property. Security is the dark underbelly of Industry 4.0, the stinging fly in the ointment. But don’t despair. There are a wide variety of new strategies and technologies that promise to shore up our defenses and protect next-generation manufacturing operations. Find out more as we explore the evolving state of manufacturing security.
