The perspective is clear: The number of safety-relevant products and systems in modern industrial and production complexes will increase significantly worldwide. Digital control will be used in all kinds of automated industrial infrastructures in the near future. But industrial legacy systems in particular were not designed with future technologies, security-critical aspects and cybercriminal threats in mind. In terms of their digital components, they still mostly consist of broad, internally and externally connected corporate networks that are affected by considerable security threats due to their partially uncoordinated structure, unsystematic connectivity and open communication channels.
We see clearly: Future Industries requires far better security precautions than in the past, as well as a new way of thinking and acting that recognizes today the potential threats of tomorrow and effectively counters them. Cybersecurity is already an integral part of innovative engineering and an indispensable prerequisite for industrial plant safety.
As a manufacturer, system integrator or end user, you must meet high requirements. Newly established and updated standards for functional safety require you to constantly analyze and re-evaluate threats and to take appropriate defensive measures effectively and in good time. Furthermore, there is the continuing shortage of qualified IT specialists who understand security-relevant standards of today and tomorrow and who can implement and update effective, reliable and future-proof protection mechanisms. Moreover, compliance with statutory security requirements increases the cost of setting up and maintaining protection mechanisms.
