Securing production data, a major challenge for Industry 4.0
Cybersecurity is the key to a successful transition to Industry 4.0. Data, at the heart of the economy, is highly coveted by hackers, and the industrial sector is no exception, facing industrial espionage, data encryption with ransom demands (ransomware) among other threats. Manufacturers need to increase the protection of their data, by securing access and improving the cyber-resilience of their production facilities to guarantee business continuity. Otherwise, a successful cyberattack can bring a factory’s production line to a halt, causing significant financial losses and damage to brand image.
