The invention and widespread use of robots, programmable controllers, and digital control systems integrated with corporate enterprise networks have led to a change in production management approaches and the rapid development of multiple new technological departments.
FREMONT, CA: Digitalization is emerging as the key trend in every business sector, and companies that fail to capitalize on this are risking being thrown out of contention. The increased number of startups has mounted the pressure on the traditional companies that are still relying on legacy systems. In recent years, this has become a trend in the manufacturing industry as well. The digital transformation of the production sector has forced business leaders to bring revolutionary changes to the business models. Digital transformation in manufacturing involves introducing modern and innovative technologies and solutions, adapting and developing new business models to suit a digital economy's conditions, and creative, smart factories and qualitative improvement in business processes, including the production line.
The rapid changes and growth in the field of information technology and digitalization have forced the manufacturing industry to adopt new methods and production systems. The invention and widespread use of robots, programmable controllers, and digital control systems integrated with corporate enterprise networks have led to a change in production management approaches and the rapid development of multiple new technological departments. This has also placed more emphasis on ensuring the safety of industrial systems.
Digital transformation has been the backbone of all technological developments in recent years. All the emerging trends and disruptive technologies like Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, big data, and the Internet of Things are dependent on digitization. Modern smart manufacturing industries leverage digital and computer technology in all areas of work. From process control to business planning and workflow, nearly all processes are now carried out using digital technology and digital data infrastructure. This has led to an increased need for cybersecurity.
Cybersecurity is a set of principles and means of ensuring the security of information processes, approaches to managing security, and other technologies used to counter the implementation of cyber threats actively. The modern cybersecurity paradigm includes revision of access control models that take into account openness, flexibility and distribution, adoption of virtualization technology as a powerful means of protection, implementation of the principle of separation of the information processing environment and the means of protection, building the theoretical foundations of managing dynamic protection, acceptance of the openness of systems as an inalienable property and the construction of protection with this in mind, and more.
