Cybersecurity for Manufacturing

Learn how ThreatAdvice can help protect your manufacturing company.

The manufacturing industry is a rich target for bad actors who can cause physical damage, downtime with facilities, and even cause breaches of intellectual property and customer data.

Manufacturers Face Unique Cybersecurity Challenges

It’s no secret that manufacturers really need to be concerned with cybersecurity. The manufacturing industry faces some unique risks that other industries don’t as it relates to a cyberattacks. Most industries are only worried about data getting stolen, but manufacturers also have to worry about hackers changing the performance of operational technology and causing manufacturing disruptions that could lead to defective products (meaning recalls and reputation losses), production downtime, physical damage and even the possibility of injuries or deaths.

1. Industrial internet of things devices that were built and installed with no security concerns.
2. Legacy equipment that most likely does not have up to date security patches.
3. Gaps in technology between IT and operations.
4. Lack of appropriate training policies and procedures.
5. Perhaps most importantly, employees who are not educated as to all of the cyber risks they might encounter.

The traditional focus has been on performance and safety, not security. In today’s cyber climate, manufacturers most definitely need to add cybersecurity to their list of concerns.
