Industry Overview:

The manufacturing industry is a critical component of North America’s economy, encompassing a wide variety of sectors including automotive, aerospace, electronics, chemicals, textiles, and more. It is the backbone of production, converting raw materials into finished goods on a massive scale. As of January 2022, the manufacturing industry in North America was valued at approximately $2.4 trillion, demonstrating its vital role in the economy.

Importance of Cybersecurity:

In an increasingly digitized world, manufacturing operations often rely on automated systems, IoT devices, and complex software platforms to improve efficiency and production output. These technological advancements, while beneficial, also make manufacturing companies susceptible to cyber threats. Cybersecurity is thus crucial for safeguarding manufacturing processes, protecting intellectual property, and ensuring the safety of automated systems. Any disruption due to cyber incidents can lead to halted production lines, compromised proprietary technology, and significant financial losses.
