CYBERSECURITY FOR MANUFACTURERS
The transformation of the manufacturing industry by IoT, IIoT, OT, SCADA, and other data-related technologies is so significant that it’s been called the fourth industrial revolution – or Industry 4.0.
However, because these technologies are constantly monitoring, collecting, and sending sensitive data, they have become a valuable target for threat actors. There were 1.51 billion breaches of IoT devices in the first half of 2021 alone, and OT ransomware incidents have increased by 133% since 2020.
Why are the manufacturing industry’s networks vulnerable, and what can you do to minimize these risks?
