Learning Journey

Bootcamp Cybersecurity for manufacturing

This in-depth 7-week learning journey for manufacturing teaches you how to safely step into digital manufacturing and supports you with an actionable step-by-step roadmap towards resilient cybersecurity. We deliver the knowledge in a pragmatic, hands-on format, bringing you deep insight into all security aspects of your transition to Industry 4.0. It consists of 4 masterclass modules, practice sessions and personal coaching.

“It takes 20 years to build a reputation but only a few minutes of a cyber-incident to ruin it.”

Stephane Nappo, global CISO of the year 2018


Why does cybersecurity matter?

  • CONNECTED MACHINERY
    More and more companies are connecting their shopfloor, often exposing legacy devices, or they trust their supply vendors for remote maintenance and exchanging sensitive data with their partners. But are these operations safe? 
     
  • USE TRUST AS A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE
    More and more companies are using digital services, where they need to trust their providers to keep and exchange sensitive data safely. This need increased after GPDR legislation came into effect. But are these operations actually safe on your digital platform? By having robust and well documented cybersecurity you stand out in a purchasing process, especially when dealing with corporates.
     
  • PROTECT YOUR BRAND (AND HARD WORK)

    What if you become a target of a cyberattack? Or receive a question about cybersecurity from the customer? Without an incident recovery plan, a business can experience colossal damage -days of downtime- and the customer, who wants a trusted partner, drops out. However, this can be prevented when adopting resilient cybersecurity practices and culture.

Do you recognize your company in the following situations?

  • You connect legacy devices.

  • The basic authentication is missing.

  • You need to exchange data through the cloud.

  • A third party has access to your devices.


This training proposes an in-depth coaching trajectory in order to safely step into Industry 4.0

  • Maintain cybersecurity in connected shopfloor and in office premises
  • Safely interact with supply chain and establish security while performing remote maintenance
  • Exchange sensitive data internally and externally while preserving security and privacy
  • Adopt cybersecurity as a culture and as business enabler
