LIVE virtual training schedule

  • 26th - 27th October 2020: Industry 4.0 Cyber Security Management Training for Operational Level
    9 am to 5.30 pm SGT | 2 Days


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 cyber security into the operations in line with the senior management’s business plans. As such, the cyber security 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.

Duration: 2-day course (available as a live virtual training course)
