What Is IT Management and Why do you Need it for Your Company?

IT Management and Data Security for Manufacturing

 

 

Protect your operations with cutting edge IT security protocols

Manufacturing firms are choosing to be proactive in their digital evolution efforts more and more. Industry 4.0 digitization can give you greater efficiency and productivity, but the increased technology utilization also presents a cybersecurity challenge.

73% of attacks on manufacturers are financially motivated.

27% of attacks are related to espionage.

50% of manufacturers have experienced a cyberattack or data breach.

While not every cyberattack has a catastrophic impact on your productivity, it’s evident that manufacturers are an attractive target for cybercriminals.

External threats aren’t the only thing you should protect against

The Verizon® 2021 Data Breach Investigations Report found that 25% of threats to manufacturing firms involved internal threats. Implementing measures such as two-factor authentication, password management, and role-based access helps mitigate the risk posed by disgruntled or unethical employees determined to sell your client lists or proprietary data.

 

Understand all connected devices—and how to secure them

Whether it’s on the production floor or in the office, it has to be secured if it has internet connectivity. Something as simple as an HVAC system, Wi-Fi-enabled sensor, or smart TV can make your entire network vulnerable.
