Cyber Security Beyond the Industry 4.0 Era. A Short Review on a Few Technological Promises


  • Antonio CLIM


The global development industries progress towards meeting the ever evolving contemporary and future demands. This transformative evolution introduced phenomena such as Industry 4.0 and 5.0 which are facilitated by both information and operational technologies: collaborative robotics, IoT, AI. Their integration into a hyper-connected system facilitates the production of goods and services. In addition, these industries are characterized by automation, as well as by unmatched levels of data exchange throughout the value chain. Cyber security risks are crucial as the prevalence of these information and operation technologies has changed the appearance of cyber threats. Addressing the premises and realities of cyber security in Industries 4.0 and 5.0 is crucial. Risk mitigation strategies provided by various organizations are crucial for lowering risks. Given the loopholes and vulnerabilities generated by interconnections, cyber security is vital for the advancement of digital industrial transformation.
