According to RiskWatch International, the top five risks facing manufacturers include the following;
Every manufacturer, regardless of size, shares the above challenges and perhaps others. Additional concerns related to the above list can range from the safe arrival of parts and raw materials, secure manufacturing processes to protect against theft and accidents and the reliable delivery of finished goods to ensure customer satisfaction.
Manufacturing companies have a lot to consider when it comes to security. Not only do they have to think about protecting the people working in the facility and the products that they are producing, but they also have to think about protecting their customer and employee information, financial records, product information/trade secrets and much more.
Now, consider the added pressure of the daily news headlines reporting security breaches. Every day there seems to be another organization that becomes a victim to hackers. Leadership teams face tough decisions on how to allocate their security budgets to try and protect their businesses from being the next ones at risk. With cyber breaches happening so often, it’s understandable why companies are increasing cybersecurity budgets, but they shouldn’t put all their eggs in one security basket.
For manufacturers, protecting physical security also means protecting information, personnel and products. As manufacturing becomes increasingly connected, it’s vital that manufacturers adopt more modern security practices that go beyond a traditional perimeter security approach. It’s safe to assume that cybercriminals will hack into your network at some point. Therefore, it’s important to make sure that the most important data is locked up in a way that hackers couldn’t touch it, even if they break in.
