Cybersecurity in manufacturing
With cybersecurity threats on the rise, today’s need for cyber-resilience could not be greater. Is your manufacturing business ready to face and resist an unprecedented growth of cybercrime? Outsmart hackers before they outsmart you. Make use of our services in ‘Cybersecurity in Manufacturing’.


Are you ready for an era of cyberattacks?
With more than 30.000 cyberattacks registered each year and a 20% annual increase in incidents, cybercrime has never been more real for Belgian SMEs. This also stands for the manufacturing industry: machines are being connected, data collected and exchanged (often through cloud services), posing a real risk to cyberattacks.
In the blink of an eye, any business without sufficient resilience can become the victim of cybercrime. The consequences of security breaches - interrupted operations, data loss and a spoiled reputation - may take years to recover from. Therefore, in order to prevent these breaches, your SME needs a tailor-made strategy and a clear roadmap for resilience.

The cybersecurity threat in numbers

Thanks to the survey on cybersecurity Sirris did last year in cooperation with Agoria, Howest and UGent, we have a pretty good picture of the situation in the Belgian production industry, and we all have a very good reason to be worried.
