Cyber security in the manufacturing industry: A story of a targeted attack
When there is a lot to lose, cyber security needs to be a priority. Like in the manufacturing sector. Imagine a competitor releasing your prototype for a rip off price only a few weeks before you were planning to go public. Your investment in (years of) research and development would go to waste. Or, envision a hacker messing with your production systems. Even a short production downtime would cost you millions. And it would take weeks to bring the process back running. Majority of cyber attacks in manufacturing are targeted. Financial gain (53 %) and industrial espionage (47 %) are the main motives behind cyber attacks on the manufacturing industry. In manufacturing, 86 % of the cyber attacks are targeted.1. Attackers are after a certain goal and keep chasing it persistently. They may perform in-depth research and attempt intruding several systems before you notice anything.
