    4-Moves-for-ManufacturingThe manufacturing industry has undergone a digital metamorphosis, embracing connected systems and devices to drive efficiency and innovation to new heights. But increased operational technology and internet of things device adoption has opened the doors to a growing number of cybersecurity threats, including ransomware attacks and intellectual property theft.

    In an article for SupplyChainBrain, Blumira CTO and co-founder Matt Warner shines a spotlight on the importance of a proactive, multi-layered approach to cybersecurity in the manufacturing sector. He warns that the consequences of cyber incidents go beyond just operational setbacks: they also erode customer trust and put partner safety at risk.

    To help manufacturers fortify their defenses, Warner outlines four core elements of a powerful cybersecurity strategy. These include early threat detection and response, nurturing a cyber-savvy workforce, adhering to robust risk management frameworks, and leveraging technology for a stronger defense.

    By adopting these strategies, manufacturers can take the reins of their cybersecurity posture and build resilience against evolving threats. Warner emphasizes the importance of collaboration between manufacturers, cybersecurity experts, and industry groups to enhance the sector's collective ability to predict, prepare for, and respond to cyber threats.
