Enabling Industry 4.0: Securing Cyber-Physical Assets – IBM

Posted on Posted in Archive Events, Online

The inter-connected nature of an Industry 4.0 environment means that any security breach or attack could have severe consequences. There’s a lot more technology to protect, which gives attackers an advantage because one entry could compromise the entire setup, as multiple factories would be interconnected. Stuxnet was a clear example of just how serious it could get, when the malware could control equipment in a nuclear plant.

While industry 4.0 has its benefits, cyber security simply can’t be overlooked as an afterthought. It has to be fully integrated into the plan right from the beginning. That’s because Industry 4.0 spurs a cyber-physical environment where elements like sensors, actuators and devices communicate and provide visibility with data and insights on the shop floor, in buildings and in a supply chain environment.

CIOs, CTOs & CISOs adapting to this new ecosystem want to secure assets and instill confidence into manufacturing and supply chain stakeholders. At the same time, give them a secure connection to analyze sensor-based real-time data and events.

In this webinar, learn more about the security implications of an industry 4.0 setup and how to secure your visibility to your industry 4.0 operations and performance.
