Cybercrime has grown by over 69% between 2019 and 2020. As technology increases, so does the number of tools a cybercriminal has at their disposal. Cybercriminals carry out attacks if the benefits outweigh the costs, and major companies such as manufacturing plants have a lot to lose - criminals know this and exploit manufacturing cybersecurity.



Manufacturing companies have unique challenges when it comes to securing their environments. They traditionally run standard technology systems as well as industrial control systems (ICSs). ICS devices usually run proprietary operating systems and are not as well equipped to withstand or even detect an attack.
