Keeping your production line operational
While the manufacturing sector was a low risk industry for cyber-attacks, this is not the case anymore. The new technology that is being incorporated in the operations cycle increases the need for cyber security.
Another area that traditional manufacturers have to step up their game regarding security is during the production of devices that have the ability to connect on the internet. These internet of things (IoT) devices would be exponentially more secure if they are designed with security in mind, instead of trying to patch problems after the fact.
Overall, our new reality is that even sectors previous unaffected by cyber criminals are now prime targets, especially because in some cases perceptions have not catch up with reality.
