Effective riskmanagement for Industry 4.0
In the field of Automation and Manufacturing 4.0, digitalisation continues to be the central subject for the future. Increased networking poses new and more comprehensive challenges for product safety. Important requirements such as the standardisation of interfaces in production have not yet been conclusively met. Nevertheless, the process of digitalising Industry 4.0 must be begun, continued and secured. Wherever machines or vehicles are automatically exchanging information, the identity of the end devices must be clearly determined, and all unauthorised influences (cyber-attacks) from outside must be avoided, so that the security of the system can continue to be guaranteed. The assessment of critical infrastructure is now required by legislation.
