Why the Rise of Smart Factories Facilitates Better Third-Party Security

Presented by

Director of Sales Engineering, Russell Dowdell

About this talk

Most manufacturing entities are becoming “smart” and joining the industrial revolution 4.0, whether they want to or not. The major shift to remote access, cloud servers, and a massive influx of IoT has left manufacturers’ cybersecurity architecture outdated and vulnerable. This gap creates a major risk – the risk of a third-party related hack. Third parties are multiplying within organizations to fill digital, remote needs, and every third-party access point carries the threat of a cyberattack. Third parties are often granted too much access and are not properly managed, and in an industry that is still finding their footing in a digital world while struggling to keep IT talent, the vulnerabilities are growing. Join SecureLink’s Director of Sales Engineering, Russell Dowdell to better understand: - How manufacturing is transforming. - Why smart factories need equally smart security strategies. - How organizations can implement better third-party security and access management.
