Manufacturing is changing in response to evolving customer demands and the constant pressure to reduce costs and improve productivity. Meeting these challenges requires organisations to embrace new flexible methods of working. This need for agility requires operational and enterprise IT systems to work closely together.
However, as systems interconnect, information security risks are also shared. Risks that may have previously been considered as non-critical increase in severity when systems become networked and interdependent. With the desire to implement new functionality, systems and infrastructure, the new risks that these developments entail may become overlooked.
Integrated manufacturing systems offer many opportunities for manufacturers, but also introduce risks that need to be correctly managed and addressed. This webcast analyses the challenges facing the manufacturing industry and recommends how organisations should secure their business.
