Smart manufacturing has taken great leaps in recent years. Analytics and connected technology have helped manufacturers to improve product quality and cut maintenance costs. In fact, Juniper Research believes that the number of industrial devices connected to the internet will triple by 2020. But having more devices connected to the internet also increases your risk of cyber crime.
Manufacturers need to link clearly about the significance of cyber risks. Any device that is accessed by a third party could result in the theft of sensitive data, operational downtime and more. While manufacturers put these devices in place, the IT support needs to be there to minimize risks with a system that detects potential attacks. Beyond prevention, every company should also have a plan in place for dealing with a cyber related crisis.
