‘Cybersecurity 4.0 demonstrator made real’ (user group members-only)
More and more companies are investing in operational technologies (OT), connectivity and cloud-based data solutions to improve their manufacturing processes. It creates many opportunities, but also increases the risks and the importance of cybersecurity. Just one attack can have a major impact, from system downtime to lasting reputational damage. Maintaining security requires continuous learning and agility.
To help manufacturing companies tackle this problem, research partners from Belgium – Sirris and Howest - and Germany – FIR and IDA - initiated a research project: ‘Cybersecurity 4.0: Strategic and case-specific cybersecurity - for Industry 4.0 in SMEs’. CyberSecurity 4.0 aims to enable SMEs to secure their connected production systems and Industry 4.0 applications appropriately. Specifically for the Industry 4.0 context, the project develops an accessible, low-threshold and SME-oriented cybersecurity framework, techniques and tools (with proven ROI), guidelines, a demonstrator and learning environment. This leads to lower costs of cyberattacks and data breaches, to the ability to comply with cybersecurity requirements and to increase trust of partners. The project focuses on the most vulnerable and least addressed domains of cybersecurity for Industry 4.0: operation technology, supply chain and data exchange.
Experience it live!
In the first part of the workshop we will present you our actionable maturity model for connected manufacturing, which represents our approach and pragmatic roadmap towards NIS2 compliance for manufacturing.
In the second part, we will demonstrate the security controls both on IT and OT layer for each cell of a production line built, with reference to maturity levels. You will get hands-on experience with typical attack scenarios corresponding to all proposed maturity level and the risk mitigation strategies. You will be also able to test your knowledge by participating in the attack detection and protection quest.
The session will conclude with Q&A and brainstorming on efficient cybersecurity roadmap for Industry 4.0 providing a unique tailor-made experience.
