Digital transformation opens the door to multiple end-point devices within an organization’s industrial and embedded systems, putting not just the enterprise at risk, but external users too. This demands heightened governance, protection and supervision mechanisms.
Cyber attacks on industrial systems can have severe consequences. Their impact extends from data to industrial infrastructures, and potentially people’s safety. Connected objects within these systems, from sensors to connected vehicles, can be targeted by cyber criminals. With the move towards interconnecting business management systems and the Internet of Things (IoT), this is now a real and urgent problem that must be addressed to ensure you stay competitive in the digital age.
