Manufacturing

The manufacturing industry

A latest IBM survey stated that the manufacturing industry has been ranked second in the most attacked section of the industry. This clearly indicates that protecting OT and IT systems is a great challenge. The most vital threat has been a breach of intellectual assets. However, in recent times, attackers have started attacking primary services like logistics and supply chains.
A fresh series of serious cyber threats has come along with new additions like smart factories and industry 4.0. Criminals are aiming for connected devices interfering with production units of the manufacturing companies. This interference causes reputational and financial damage to the great extent. This is why all the companies put emphasis on cybersecurity of manufacturing units.

Challenges

Supply Chain

If cybersecurity in a supply chain is not maintained then it can generate plenty of problems like loss of confidential information, delivery delays of components, or substandard component delivery.

Espionage

When you a company have a world class product; everybody in the market wants to get hands on that product. Most of the product data is stored in a digitized format which increases the threat of cyber-attacks. If an attack gets past security system then it could result into loss of resources both physical loss and logical loss.

Security of Control System

Manufacturing delays or errors lead to loss of reputation of the manufacturer and financial capital which can be caused by the loss of integrity of control systems.

Industry 4.0

While boarding the industry 4.0, there have been waves of rising threats. Such as, man-in-the-middle scenarios or denial of a package within data exchange and automation manufacturing technologies have been turning out to be more common.
