How to implement cybersecurity on a connected shop floor?

More and more companies are connecting their shop floor, 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?

For whom? 

You are an OT engineer, IT responsible, maintenance technicians and process engineers at a manufacturing company or a service provider.  

What is it about? 

  • Maintain cybersecurity in your connected shop floor and in the office. Learn how to establish security while performing remote maintenance
  • This training proposes 2 in-depth theory sessions in order to help you safely step into Industry 4.0. The group will consist of 15 participants. 
  • Per company you also get a private individual coaching session so we can tackle your specific challenges together.
  • Learn to ask the right questions to your cybersecurity provider to make sure you are protected. 


Why do YOU need to follow this masterclass? 

  • All cybersecurity questions and decisions cannot be completely outsourced to your cybersecurity provider as no one knows your procedures and network better than you. 

  • Avoid colossal damage (days of downtime) in case of a cyberattack by having robust and well documented cybersecurity practices and an incident recovery plan, when you become a target of a cyberattack.
