Arming yourself with data intelligence is the first step in preventing cyber attacks in today’s smart world. Smart Factories and Industry 4.0 technologies are the new normal in today’s manufacturing environments. The last several years have seen a significant increase in cyber attacks in manufacturing environments. Threat actors are focusing their attention on IoT and OT. In fact, OT attacks surged 2000% year-over-year in 2019. Attacks on OT have the potential to cripple your business. Beyond monetary implications, the company is also open to business disruption, reputation damage, lawsuits and litigation, and more. It is more important than ever that companies are aware of their vulnerabilities and have the IoT cybersecurity to protect their systems.
As these technologies become more commonplace, so do the risks associated with each new connection your company makes in stepping towards digital transformation. Unfortunately, the increase in IoT-enabled technologies also means an increased risk of cyberattacks. Each new connection is a new point of access for attackers. Leaving you with several areas attackers can find access points into your how to organization. With attacks on OT increasing and the overall cost for a single attack reaching upwards of $4 million, IoT security should be a priority for smart manufacturers. Data intelligence gives you the ability to prevent these attackers from impacting operations and critical infrastructures.
