White Paper Cyber security for Industry and Manufacturing

New challenges for manufacturing, production & operations in today’s connected world

Factory of the future. Industry 4.0. IIoT, the Industrial Internet of Things. Predictive maintenance. Data mining. IT/OT integration. Smart manufacturing. The connected supply chain. etc. No matter what buzzword or catchy name you prefer, one thing is certain: a key trend in the business world today is the digitalisation and automation of factories and production facilities. Operational equipment and machinery are increasingly connected to the internet and exchanging data and information in real-time with systems within the company as well as across a network of suppliers, partners and even customers. This can range from a small sensor that shares the maintenance status of a machine to a fully developed interface between a production plant and a company’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems.
