Smart factories rely on networked industrial environments, which promise huge efficiency gains and customized production capabilities. However, automated communication between cyber-physical systems also poses significant threats and risks to suppliers as well as customers.

This webinar starts off by giving you an overview of the security challenges facing smart factories, going on to introduce protection concepts for industrial devices such as routers, PLCs and industrial PCs. It winds up with real-world solutions that show you how to secure authentication and protect the integrity of your industrial devices.

Attend this webinar to learn about:

  • About common security threats facing smart factories
  • How hardware-based security enables strong protection of industrial automation systems
  • About implementation concepts for secured authentication and protection of device integrity

Who should attend?
Design engineers, system architects and product managers involved in device and system design for industrial automation systems
