Internet of Things (IoT) security issues could plague the manufacturing industry more than any other.
Internetworking -- that is connecting your network with other networks, such as those of your vendors and contractors -- may simplify conducting business, but it could allow cyber attackers even more opportunities to steal your data. Your network security architecture and that of your business associates who connect with your network can either make it simple or difficult for an attacker to steal your manufacturing data.
The theft of your trade secrets, blueprints, or designs can allow a competitor anywhere in the world to create your products, sell them far cheaper and put your company out of business. Your network, supply chain and IoT systems can all put your business at risk, and to protect it, you need the right defences.
