It’s no secret that manufacturers really need to be concerned with cybersecurity. Manufacturing is a rich target for bad actors who can cause physical damage, cause downtime with facilities, and cause breaches of intellectual property and customer data. Manufacturing offers unique opportunities for exploitation, including:

  • 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.

Manufacturers are only as strong and as cyber-prepared as their weakest employee link. Make sure to educate every single network connected employee to help avoid potential disaster.
