Cybersecurity refers to the protection practice for the hardware, software, and data from being destroyed, altered or leaked by accidental or malicious reasons to ensure the system runs continuously and the network service is not interrupted. An effective cybersecurity methodology has multiple levels of protection spread across the computers, networks, programs, and data that one intends to remain secure. For an effective defense from cyber-attacks, the people, processes, and technology in any organization should complement one another.The cybersecurity can be divided into physical security and logical security. Physical safety refers to the physical protection of system equipment and related facilities from damage and loss. Logical security includes integrity, confidentiality, and availability of information.
Driving Digital Transformation: Mazak Corporation
Mazak required a common, standards-based method to securely connect and derive value from the rich, raw data in its machine tools. An advanced security system suitable for IT and operations technology (OT) was necessary to protect from both internal and external attackers. The application needed to run on the network infrastructure on the factory floor, immediately transforming process, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), and sensor data. The fog application needed to support the MTConnect specification for integration with existing systems and sensors. Real-time analytics were required to process high frequency vibration, temperature, coolant, and sound inputs to inform operator action and drive business support systems.
With field engineers servicing sophisticated tire production machines around the globe, tire machine specialist VMI felt the need to secure access to the Programmed Logic Controllers on installations. This leading Dutch tire machine manufacturer realized that a centrally administered password key protection scheme would safeguard intellectual capital and machine investments for the future.
