As the manufacturing sector becomes increasingly interconnected due to the reliance on network enabled processes, manufacturing facilities are opening themselves up to previously nonexistent vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities allow attacks in the form of malicious and/or unintended changes to part characteristics or manufacturing processes within the manufacturing environment. Currently, inspection and quality control approaches in manufacturing alone are ill equipped to address such cyber-physical vulnerabilities. This talk will discuss techniques to assist the manufacturing enterprise in highlighting security gaps and developing mitigation strategies specific to manufacturing. There will be additional discussion on improving current quality control tools to detect malicious and unintended changes caused by cyber-physical attacks.
- Understand the need for cyber-physical security in advanced manufacturing
- Highlight general areas of cyber-physical vulnerability within your respective manufacturing facilities
- Describe effective tools and approaches to mitigate cyber-physical attacks within your production environment
