Greater connectivity across a broad playing field

Increasingly smart devices, systems and networks, in a landscape where everything is interconnected and everything interacts, represents a fourth industrial revolution. A revolution that's become known as 'industry 4.0'. We operate at the heart of that revolution, with a clear view of the opportunities it offers and the security implications of stepping out onto industry 4.0's broad playing field.

Continuity, innovation and transition

Every organisation has to contend with change, growth and market dynamics. A business is an organic, adaptive entity. Continually responding to continuity, innovation and transition challenges in a process driven not only by new technologies and opportunities, but also by competitive pressures and changes in the regulatory environment.

Clear governance

Continuous innovation, transition and continuity protection demand interactive thinking, prompt specialist engagement and clear, collaborative governance at all levels. So that everyone is involved, enabling proactive adaptation and opportunity utilisation.

As strong as the weakest link

Every new opportunity entails new risk. Not all smart devices and interfaces are as secure as you might want. Every functional extension should therefore be thoroughly analysed ahead of implementation to assess its impact and identify risks. After all, an apparently innocent device can sometimes conceal a serious security risk.

Making full use of new opportunities

Industry 4.0 is opening up a wide range of new opportunities. In order to reap the full benefit, it’s important not only to consider the governance implications, but also to adopt a number of core values. The goal is a clear, open, transparent culture, in which nothing is taken for granted, and security, privacy and compliance are considered at every stage.
