Summit Speaker John Shackleton
Securing the Cloud for Manufacturing
Wednesday, June 06, 2018 03:30PM - 04:15PM
Manufacturing has benefited from the move to enterprise cloud platforms and server virtualization for their computing needs. In the rush to increase productivity and lower costs, however, security is often sacrificed. Commercial virtualization software consistently prioritizes speed and ease-of-use ahead of cyber-security, and cloud service vendors offer better security at a steep price. This presentation describes a number of threat scenarios facing cloud-based manufacturing, outlines their specific risks, and introduces technology solutions to protect private clouds against these potential cyber-attacks.
