Cybersecurity: where does Industry 4.0 stand?

Industries now have to withstand a constant barrage of cyber-attacks - the flip side of living in an increasingly connected world. Cyber-attacks, more sophisticated by the day, can infiltrate computerised devices and bring entire companies to a grinding halt. A simple smart coffee pot can constitute a breach through which cyber-attacks can penetrate the system. From 23-27 April, our Stormshield experts are heading to the Hannover Messe trade fair in Germany to exchange ideas and create the industrial cybersecurity of the future. Look for us at booth F14 in Hall 7.

It may seem like there is a substantial way to go from your morning coffee to bringing down an entire production line, and yet... Take a look at this LinkedIn post from Robert Wakim, Offer Manager for Industry at Stormshield, on this seemingly innocuous daily act that has become a line of attack.
