Security Congress Abstract
A manufacturing environment is a complex IT ecosystem with hundreds of different interfaces, network paths and functions that are distinctly different from an office IT environment. Making changes simply to comply with corporate IT policies or some “best practice” can bring production lines to a halt and create life-threatening impacts on employees.
Addressing the unique security challenges of manufacturing or other industrial systems requires a more creative approach: making the most of what’s already in place; a sharp focus on preventing production outages; and protecting employee safety. Our motto is “everything breaks production!”
