Cyber Security for Advanced Manufacturing Conference

London, United Kingdom

Enhancing OT Cyber Security in the Digital Era

The adoption of industry 4.0 is driving the digitalisation of manufacturing, transforming the way products are designed, developed and serviced. The widespread integration of digital technologies such as robotics and automation, data analytics and cloud computing within the industrial environment is driving down production costs and rapidly increasing profits for the most advanced manufacturers. This transformation, though full of promise, also poses risks. The interconnection and digitalisation of operational technology is increasing cyber vulnerabilities, and advanced manufacturers must bake in cyber security principles and practices that are effective against the rapidly evolving global cyber threat.

Our Cyber Security for Advanced Manufacturing Conference is the first sector-specific opportunity to tackle these issues. The conference offers a unique opportunity for advanced manufacturers to learn from and connect with cyber security specialists, technology leaders and policymakers who will offer practical guidance, case-studies and risk analyses to ensure that the industry is prepared for and resilient against the cyber and data breach threat. The event is not simply designed to increase cyber awareness, but to provide a cybersecurity toolkit for industrial leaders who are ready to succeed in the Digital Era.Key
