Networking poses risks for the safe operation of machinery and plant. Even today, 30 per cent of the companies surveyed recently by VDMA speak of production downtimes as a result of security incidents. The damage is huge – in particular from ransomware or CEO fraud. The operators of machinery and plant are concerned above all with the availability of data and services, the integrity of Industry 4.0 data, and the elimination of safety hazards from cyberattacks.
Principles for risk assessment, automation component requirements, and embedded software protection must be included as early as the production development and design stages.
At the congress, leading industry experts will be reporting on the requirements, measures, and practical aids in the sector. Live hacking will demonstrate on site the vulnerability of today’s systems.
Don’t forget to book your attendance in good time for this pioneering event.
