Industry 4.0 Cyber Security Management

Training Course

Training Course

The deployment of I4.0 technologies comes with an increased risk of vulnerability to cyber threats for the company. Each element of the digital value chain and connected production assets face unique cyber risks, and the human factor is the single biggest threat to assets and operations.

You need to have cyber awareness and a detailed understanding of cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and practices to ensure cyber resilience for I4.0 adoption and implement operational-level practices for operational continuity.

Course Description

In recent years, the adoption of Industry 4.0 (I4.0) technologies is getting much traction among manufacturers. These include increased automation, deployment of wireless networks on the shopfloor, remote controls, robotics and knowledge management systems that connect business and manufacturing lines. 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) are very beneficial. They enable manufacturers, regardless of their size and sector, to improve productivity and competitiveness through cost control, better planning and fast recovery.

However, the competitive advantage you can achieve through the deployment of I4.0 technologies comes with an increased risk of vulnerability to cyber threats for the company. Each element of the digital value chain and connected production assets face unique cyber risks. The human factor is the single biggest threat to assets and operations.

This 2-day course for operations and information security executives provides cyber awareness and a detailed understanding of cyber threats and vulnerabilities. You will also learn about practices to ensure cyber resilience for I4.0 adoption and how to implement operational-level practices for operational continuity. In addition, this course will equip operational level executives with the fundamental success factors for cyber resilience.

This interactive and insightful training will give you both a theoretical background and practical hands-on experience for the holistic understanding and implementation of operational cybersecurity in I4.0. You will benefit from TÜV SÜD’s training and experience in managing industrial cybersecurity risks to improve productivity by reducing operational costs and downtime.
