In recent years, adoption of the Industry 4.0 technologies such as increased automation, deployment of wireless networks on the shopﬂoor, remote controls, robotics and knowledge management systems that connect business and manufacturing lines is getting a lot of traction among manufacturers. These technologies that interface with the production life cycle (from the digital supply network to the smart factory through the connected objects, process, and digital assets) enable the businesses to improve productivity and competitiveness through cost control, better planning and fast recovery for all manufacturers independent of their size and sector.
The competitive advantage reached by the deployment of I4.0 technologies comes however with an increased risk of vulnerability to the cyber threats for the company. There are unique cyber risks faced by each element of the digital value chain and connected production assets. The human factor becomes the single biggest threat to assets and operations.
The operations and information security executives should anticipate and eﬀectively address cyber risks as well as proactively integrate cybersecurity into the operations in line with the senior management’s business plans. As such, the cybersecurity becomes part of the mission critical tasks in addition to the operational continuity and recovery for operations and information security executives. This involves protecting IT (enterprise) and OT (shopﬂoor) assets in a coordinated manner. The key for success to secure, safe, and resilient operations is awareness of the vulnerabilities and internal and external intentional or unintentional threats.
This 2-day course targets the operations and information security executives to provide cyber awareness and a detailed understanding of cyber threats, vulnerabilities as well as the practices to ensure cyber resilience for I4.0 adoption and to implement operational level practices for operational continuity. This course will equip the operational level executives with the basic success factors in cyber resilience. This course is designed as an interactive and insightful class that provides both a theoretical background and practical hands-on experience for the holistic understanding and implementation of operational cybersecurity in the frame of I4.0.
This class draws from TÜV SÜD’s training programme and experience in managing industrial cybersecurity risks to improve productivity by reducing operational costs and downtime.
The programme engages the Learn-Practise-Implement model, through which fundamental knowledge and principles taught will be reinforced in practice, as well as during the implementation process using real business scenario and data.
