How to successfully scale your industrial IoT Initiatives leveraging AI

While many manufacturers are piloting digital initiatives, very few have managed to scale their IIoT-enabled use cases to achieve significant operational or financial benefits.

In this session, our guests will talk about:

  • How to align business, organization, and technology to capture value at scale, avoiding the “pilot trap”
  • How AI can use operator input and machine data for automated contextualization of downtime and production losses
  • How automated contextualization solves unique challenges across the plant — from the frontline workers to the leadership team

Securing the connected factory of tomorrow

Sponsored by Keyfactor

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 can accelerate and improve business outcomes, bringing immense value to organizations. In industries such as manufacturing, new service offerings can be developed and increased productivity can be achieved. However, as with anything connected to the internet, IIoT devices are subject to cyber threats, including interruption or spoofing of traffic and hijacking of critical connected devices. These critical IIoT systems require reliable connectivity and the ability to trust the data and devices within the ecosystem in which they operate.

In this session, you will learn how to enable new digital business models with secure communication in the connected factory.

Operational Technology & Cyber Risk: Digital Security Readiness for Legacy and Modern Manufacturing

Sponsored by Fortinet

The future of digital security for manufacturing industrial controls and SCADA systems will be governed by readiness. Manufacturing environments can be difficult to defend against cyberattacks due to the mix of modern and legacy equipment – some of which is fragile due to the longevity of their operation. As digital transformation increases the number and type of devices connecting to the network, such as smart sensors, valves, and gauges, the expanded attack surface makes industrial environments low-hanging fruit for an attack. Listen in as our manufacturing customer panel discusses the strategies, priorities, and essentials for readiness to reduce cyber risk.

Cybersecurity for Manufacturing

Sponsored by AUVESY-MDT, Trend Micro and aDolus

Cybersecurity presents unique challenges to the manufacturing industry, considering the size and scale of the machinery and systems typically found in manufacturing facilities.
This session will give an overview of protecting automated assets in an Industry 4.0 landscape. Our panelists will also talk about protecting and restoring the OT and IT program software files and images.

Talking points:

  • What are the steps that manufacturers can take that can minimize the damage, if attacked?
  • What can be done to prevent unauthorized access to our automated production?
  • How has IoT/Industry 4.0 affected cybersecurity in the plant?
  • How does IT cybersecurity differ from OT cybersecurity measures?
  • What’s the most important thing manufacturing facilities should be thinking about if they’re worried about attacks and where should they begin?
  • How can manufacturers reduce 3rd party risk posed by their software supply chain?
