Overview

Cyber Security in Manufacturing

As a leader in the manufacturing industry, you are accustomed to adapting to change. But it would be a mistake to view cybercrime as just another routine business challenge.

No less than 60% of UK manufacturers have been affected by a cybercrime incident, with a third of these having experienced financial loss or operational disruption as a result. Despite this, manufacturing remains one of the industries least prepared for the impact of cyber-attacks.

Challenges

Do these challenges sound familiar?

Protecting sensitive business and customer data
Combatting industrial espionage and operational disruption
Detecting and responding to data breaches
Managing security in the era of Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0
Mitigating cyber security risks across the supply chain
Identifying and eliminating Industrial Control System vulnerabilities
60%
of manufacturers in UK cybercrime victims in 2019
64%
of industrial system attacks were ransomware
29%
of all cyber-attacks are on manufacturers

Key questions

Key questions manufacturers must ask

  • How often are Industrial Control Systems tested for vulnerabilities?
  • Are suitable controls in place to detect and respond to threats?
  • How are supply chain security risks managed?
  • What systems and controls are in place to mitigate insider threats?
  • How regularly are systems backed up to avoid data loss in the event of ransomware?
  • Are staff sufficiently trained about the latest cyber security risks?
