L-DIH Talks | Cybersecurity is a must-have for manufacturing

L-DIH Talks '24 I EPISODE 3

Hosted by the Luxembourg Digital Innovation Hub (L-DIH), the L-DIH Talks is a webinar series that provides inspiration, knowledge and valuable contacts for the digital transformation journey of the manufacturing sector in Luxembourg and the Greater Region. 

Among the topics covered in the 2024 edition are cybersecurity in information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT), how to leverage OT and IT for sustainability, low-code and no-code development platforms, data-driven transformation in manufacturing, and change management. Each webinar provides concrete examples of and insights into digital solutions implemented by manufacturing companies in Luxembourg.

This webinar explores the role of cybersecurity in the digital transformation of manufacturing companies, highlighting the importance of robust security measures for smart manufacturing. Cybersecurity in Industry 4.0 is not just about protecting data; it's about ensuring the continuous, safe operation of physical assets that are now digitally controlled. From production lines to supply chains, every touchpoint of the digital ecosystem must be fortified against potential breaches that could disrupt operations and compromise safety. The integration of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) in the manufacturing landscape has unlocked new potentials for data exchange, process automation, and real-time decision-making. At the same time, this convergence presents a complex challenge: an expanded attack surface vulnerable to cyber threats.

This L-DIH webinar provides a key platform for professionals to grasp the value of cybersecurity in their digital transformation path. It is crucial for businesses with a strong OT/IT infrastructure, as well as those looking to incorporate these technologies into their industrial processes. Prioritising cybersecurity allows organisations to not only secure their technology investments, but also preserve the confidence of consumers and stakeholders in an increasingly interconnected world.
