Ep. 66 Is there really a correlation with Cybersecurity and I4.0?
- On August 23, 2022
Join our SME’s (subject matter experts) from Synagex, John & Pete & MassMEP’s Rich Sullivan as they discuss why cybersecurity is the foundation to Industry 4.0. John, Pete and Rich discuss possible cybersecurity risks created when deploying IIoT (Industry Internet of Things) and other ICS (Industrial Control System) devices in industrial network environments. The adoption of i4.0 technologies may require the implementation of more sophisticated network architecture and design. That flat network topology of the past may no longer provide adequate protection of your IP (intellectual property) and sensitive information. It may be time to secure and segment your IT business technology from OT (Operational Technology) / ICS (Industrial Control Systems). Or, you might consider implementing a zero trust security model similar to the one embraced by the DoD earlier this year.
