Most manufacturing entities are becoming “smart” and joining the industrial revolution 4.0, whether they want to or not. The major shift to remote access, cloud servers, and a massive influx of IoT has left manufacturers’ cybersecurity architecture outdated and vulnerable. This gap creates a major risk – the risk of a third-party related hack. Third parties are multiplying within organizations to fill digital, remote needs, and every third-party access point carries the threat of a cyberattack. Third parties are often granted too much access and are not properly managed, and in an industry that is still finding their footing in a digital world while struggling to keep IT talent, the vulnerabilities are growing.
