On the 9th of December we held our virtual panel on “CyberFactory#1: How to make the factory of the future efficient and secure”. Our speakers, Adrien Bécue, İrem Hilavin and Jari Partanen, presented the project, the use-case of Vestel and aspects of FoF resilience before answering questions such as on human-machine relations or what the benefits of this project might be for companies that are not directly involved. Below you can find the presentation slides. We look forward to many more events in the new year!
As factories digitalise and adopt automation technologies, they unlock new business models, manufacturing processes and logistics methods – as well as alternative roles for the people and machines that work in the factory. At the same time, these processes result in more complex IT and OT systems, presenting novel cyber security challenges and potentially leading to dangerous new interdependencies.
Based on early results from the European research project CyberFactory#1, our panel discussed both the opportunities and challenges represented by the digitalisation and automation of factories, including what the transition towards a new factory system of systems may look like – but also the new threats that organisations may face if security and resilience are not prioritised early in the process.
