The manufacturing sector touches all aspects of our lives. From the clothes we wear, the cars we drive, to the electronics we can’t live without, manufacturing helps make our lifestyle possible. For manufacturers to maintain their competitive edge, they are connecting their network-based smart Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices that can collect and transmit vital manufacturing information for real-time analysis from anywhere in the operational technology (OT) environment. This has increased productivity and helped manufacturers gain efficiencies across the board. However, as these machines become more connected via the internet, new opportunities for cyberattacks have increased ten-fold.  

The NCCoE is working alongside manufacturing stakeholders and technology innovators to develop practical example solutions to address the sector’s more pressing cybersecurity challenges.
