The Rise of Smart Factories
…and the cybersecurity risk they pose
The manufacturing industry is being propelled toward Industry 4.0. With the rise of Smart Factories, we’re seeing advanced digital technology and automation become a familiar feature of the supply chain. The effects promise to be beneficial for manufacturers – automation can help improve efficiency and accuracy while reducing mistakes and waste.
But, the connected nature of Smart Factories can also leave manufacturers open to a greater risk of cyberattacks. So it’s crucial to ensure any manufacturing systems are protected to minimise the risk of unauthorised access.
