"ACTION IS NEEDED NOW"
Many companies underestimate how often they are attacked by cyber criminals - and how poorly prepared they are. That is the result of a recent study on cyber insurance by VDMA and VSMA. The study helps companies to assess their risk.
INDUSTRIE 4.0 - SECURE DIGITAL IDENTITIES CREATE TRUST
According to Industrie 4.0 experts, secure digital identities (SDIs) are the only way to ensure cybersecurity. VDMA members demonstrate what these are, where they can be used, and which technologies are currently in development.
CYBER CRIME CAUSES DAMAGE RUNNING TO MILLIONS OF EUROS
At the end of 2017, several VDMA member companies independently reported fraudulent activities involving fake bank account details in offers to international customers. There is cause for concern.
PRODUCT PIRACY - STOPPING VIRTUAL THIEVES IN THEIR TRACKS
In times of Industrie 4.0, virtual thieves are particularly dangerous. Based on digital templates, they create identical products that cannot be differentiated from the original. VDMA members present ways for manufacturers to protect themselves.
SECURITY: A MOVING TARGET
Finding the gap in the defense is the goal of the offense. The quarterback and his players run, pass and move down the field to finally enter the end zone of the opposing team: Touchdown! Hackers use a strategy similar to that of a football team in attacking the opposing side. And in the end, they, too, often win.
A PART OF THE GAME
Today's windows have burglar-proof glass, while front doors have special locking mechanisms. The goal is to make life as hard as possible for burglars. Machine manufacturers also seek to prevent unauthorized access to their products by virtual intruders, with security by design.
“UNIFORM STANDARDS WILL HELP”
According to Oliver Winzenried, CEO Wibu-Systems, it is beyond doubt that reporting by businesses that are victims of cyber attacks is mandatory. But he also knows that the handling of these incidents is rather complicated, as he explains in an interview with VDMAimpulse.
