Manufacturing preparing for next-generation cyber attacks 

As enterprises continue to embrace digitisation the significance of IT security soars. The simple reason: it plays a crucial role for service availability and thus for business itself. Despite healthcare and banking, financial services and insurance being still top in IT security expenses, manufacturing is fast emerging as a high-risk industry for breaches and attacks due to rapid growth in industrial IoT devices and Industry 4.0 initiatives. Manufacturing enterprises need to professionalize IT security and build the appropriate cyber security functions and capabilities to protect their assets.

One of the most fundamental tasks on the agenda is the set-up or development of a Security Operations Center (SOC). The SOC acts as a master control station providing 24/7 coverage to predict, prevent, detect, assess and respond to security threats and incidents. However, many are discovering gaps in their technical abilities to meet the needs of a professional SOC – some in terms of skills, some in terms of technology, some in terms of budget.
