Cybersecurity for connected solutions in industry and transport
Rapid increases in data volumes and increasing networking require secure solutions
Commercial enterprises are today in the process of implementing digitalisation and Industry 4.0, so cybersecurity is currently right at the top of their agenda. In fact, cyber attacks are now considered the most important business risk for companies worldwide.
In the EU, the Directive on security of network and information systems (NIS Directive) defines the common security standard of the member states. The EU is currently working on increasing the already high level of cybersecurity as a way of overcoming future technical challenges.
The planned Directive (NIS 2.0) will raise the bar significantly in terms of the requirements placed on operators and member states.
Focus is also on extending the scope of sectors included in the critical infrastructure, such as the charging station infrastructure for e-mobility. The aim here is for particularly critical supply chains throughout the EU to be examined with a coordinated risk assessment. In many production areas, this is shifting the focus to manufacturing.
This affects production areas used in the manufacture of the following:
- Vehicles and vehicle parts (automotive industry)
- Medical devices
- Data processing equipment
- Electronic and optical products
- Engineering products
- Chemical substances
Security engineering and key management solutions for the ultimate in industrial cybersecurity
Digital, networked manufacturing and cybersecurity come together at a new security level. The market is demanding secure products and solutions that can reliably fend off hacker attacks and come with verified security, for example in the form of safety certification to IEC 62443.
The new provisions for networked products and solutions will in future make a key contribution to achieving greater cybersecurity in both networked manufacturing operations and critical infrastructures.
To this end, achelos offers an extensive portfolio of comprehensive security engineering services and individual key management solutions for industrial cybersecurity.
