Industry 4.0 - solving the conundrum of connectivity and security
Our experts answer trending questions about staying secure through OT digitisation.
Does Industry 4.0 have to threaten the security of your operational technology?
High-profile attacks aimed at operational technology (OT) have made many organisations hesitate to implement the connectivity that drives Industry 4.0. They think it means a complete merger of IT and OT systems that leaves the organisation wide open to threat actors.
There is another way. Putting in place an appropriate, measured connection between IT and OT keeps the two separate and is the key to reaping the benefits of Industry 4.0 while maintaining a focus on security and safety.
