There's no single cause for the explosion of cyber attacks. However, the combination of always-on connected devices with growing cloud computing use and the increasing need for big data analysis in production planning and management all play a role in the evolution of manufacturing attacks.
Here's a look at the underlying causes, possible impacts, and potential remedies.
Many manufacturing enterprises are adopting smart technologies such as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities to achieve efficiencies and competitive advantage. However, this shift to Industry 4.0 is leaving organizations vulnerable to a wide range of threats including malware, distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, and device hacking.
Only 16% of manufacturers are prepared to address these cybersecurity threats, as reported by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). We partnered with Industry Week to create this FAQ that addresses the factors manufacturers should consider as they push forward with smart technology objectives. It also offers guidance toward overcoming cybersecurity challenges associated with Industry 4.0 initiatives.
