The Challenge of Industrial Control System (ICS) Security and Industry 4.0

IIoT enables unprecedented levels of real-time connectivity, dramatically increasing cybersecurity risks on the plant floor.  ICS networks have different operational requirements that impact the ability to adapt and respond to new threats – and open new paths for cyber-attacks.

As ICS stakeholders connect operational technology (OT) to enterprise information technology (IT) systems to improve operational efficiency, they should be aware that their vulnerability will increase as they raise their level of digitalization.  How Secure Are Your Industrial Control Systems?
