In a recent report from Deloitte and the Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation, cybersecurity has been named as the top threat to the food and beverage sector. The report also singles out cybersecurity as the key issue for smart factories. These factories, which rely on connectivity, IoT devices and productivity tools, can work quicker and produce goods faster than traditional factories – but are also more open to cyber-attacks. With many cyber criminals targeting key supply chain industries, this report highlights the potential for further threats. To mitigate attacks, it says, factories should address weak passwords, access controls and outdated security tools.
