According to a recent IBM X-Force research report, manufacturing “moved into second place in 2015” as one of the most-attacked industries. The report also noted that sector is quite broad, including automotive, textile, electronics, and pharmaceutical companies. These organizations typically use power-driven machines or materials-handling equipment that rely on a network infrastructure. As these machines become more connected via the internet, new opportunities for cyber-attacks arise. Cybersecurity experts at the NCCoE are working with manufacturing sector stakeholders and technology vendors to develop practical example solutions to some of the sector’s most pressing cybersecurity challenges.
