Manufacturing Data Is an Attractive Target for Cybercriminals
The technology that drives modern manufacturing is in a near-constant state of evolution, and the pace of change will only increase in coming years. But with the advent of new technology comes new cybersecurity risks. Balancing the needs of data security and technological innovation is essential to meeting the ever-changing security challenges of the future.
Key areas of vulnerability include greater capital investments in intellectual property (IP), effective management of industrial control systems, and expanding device connectivity. A security assessment of the manufacturing sector found that IP is considered a manufacturer’s most valuable asset, and the thing most often targeted by cybercriminals.
Protecting the data that fuels innovation and drives the manufacturing sector requires a comprehensive and layered approach to security. Encrypted hardware, remote drive management, and hardened endpoint protection form the core of SecureData’s integrated approach to complete data security for the manufacturing sector.
