Safety, Security Paradigm

This is a archive for Safety, Security Paradigm.

Here we are in the age of digitization where a changing business model provides new revenue and value-producing opportunities, connectivity keeps growing, business benefits are through the roof and fresh cyber attack vectors abound.
With an abundance of data, manufacturers keep learning new ways to hit markets with their products and develop ideas to creatively produce products to save more money and energy while increasing profits. Those are all great things that will keep the company scoring high in a globally competitive market.
The idea that cyber security presents an impediment into those rich global plans should be easy enough to fix, right? Just hire a team of security folks, and they will take care of it. In reality, though, there are not enough to go around.
The numbers truly back that up: There is a predicted global shortfall of 3.5 million cyber security jobs by 2021, up from 1 million openings last year. On top of that, 51 percent of organizations report having a problematic shortage of cyber security skills in 2018, up from 45 percent in 2017.

Instead of continuously reacting to the onslaught of security incidents, battle-tested security professionals continue to stress the importance of building a solid security program.

With what once could be construed as science fiction, the cold hard reality is futuristic attack scenarios are here and hitting the industry.

That is why it is imperative to know and reduce risk by staying ahead of advanced cyber threats.

Safety and security work hand in hand in the manufacturing automation arena. As cyber attacks get more sophisticated and costly, there is a growing need to elevate security awareness to the same level as safety – ensuring not only a safe, but also a secure manufacturing environment.

Let’s face it, security awareness today suffers from an identity crisis at manufacturing facilities across the globe. Big, small or anything in between, there is a general lack of understanding of security best practices.
