HOW TO PROTECT NETWORKED PRODUCTION
What if cyber attacks affected digital manufacturing in the worst imaginable way? Instead of pondering this question over and over, German industry and academia joined forces to work on ways to prevent networked production from cyber attacks and spying. On the initiative of VDMA, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research supports a national reference project entitled IUNO which focuses on information technology (IT) security in so-called Industrie 4.0 with funding totaling 20 million euros. The total volume of the project amounts to 33 million euros.
