In the fast-paced world of connected manufacturing, you need strong protection for intellectual property, designs, patents and formulas.
Theft of "hard" intellectual property (IP), such as product designs, doubled in 2015, while loss of "soft" IP like business processes jumped twenty seven percent.
While technologies and techniques in manufacturing like Internet of Things (IoT) and big data bring huge new opportunities, they also bring sizable new security risks. Levels of hard intellectual property (IP) theft doubled in recent years – you don't want to sacrifice your designs, patents and formulas in your search for efficiency and quality advances.
Yet with the right security strategy and techniques, you needn't slow your progress. Identifying your assets is one step but there are more to follow so you can stay secure without constraining your ability to innovate and grow.
This white paper will explain all the key strategic steps and techniques you should follow to stay one step ahead of attackers as you foster more optimization and improvements in your manufacturing operations.
What you will learn in this white paper:
- How to protect and enhance manufacturing with better security
- The importance of risk assessment
- The value of targeted threat hunting
- The power of unified visibility
- Why communication and training are vital
