The Fourth Industrial Revolution (AKA Industry 4.0) potentially offers industry and supply chains the ability to use digital technologies to transform processes, work at much greater speed and accelerate innovation. Cyber breaches can have devastating impacts on any organisation in 2020, but for the sectors with industrial operations such as Manufacturing, Energy, Oil & Gas, Utilities, Pharmaceutical, Healthcare, Industrial Engineering, Transport/Logistics and Consumer Goods the associated costs of unplanned downtime or inactivity are often particularly large and damaging. Increasingly IT and OT environments are growing ever more connected and rapidly increasing the potential cyber and physical threat surfaces, often as a result of unplanned or unwitting convergence. As the various environments and technologies become further interconnected this also presents challenges around interoperability and process which have to be managed carefully. This techUK event will be the first in a series of events exploring these challenges facing sectors such as manufacturing, retail and logistics, exploring how the cyber security industry can better support the adoption of digital technologies in industrial OT and IoT environments.
