Cyber Security for Manufacturing

More than two in five (42%) of UK manufacturers have been a victim of cybercrime

Manufacturing companies are increasingly reliant on digital technology making them vulnerable to cyber criminals and other threat actors.

This increasing use of the internet and digital technologies has now made the manufacturing sector one of the most viable targets for cybercrime and one of the most vulnerable too.

Due to the rapid adoption of new technologies many manufacturing companies have struggled to recruit cyber security specialists and encourage good cyber hygiene practices among employees. As we’ve seen in recent years manufacturers are particularly vulnerable to ransomware where such an attack can be devastating for production, finances and reputations.
