Build a secure network foundation for your manufacturing operations

Cisco Webcast: Building Secure Networks for Industrial Operations

Join Cisco experts on March 29 to learn about building secure networks for manufacturing operations.

Join Cisco to learn how to build a smart factory with intelligent networking and comprehensive security.

Session 1: March 29, 2022, at 10 AM Pacific Daylight Time / 1 PM Eastern Daylight Time

Manufacturing is undergoing a digital revolution as Industry 4.0 becomes a reality at plants across the globe. A critical component of Industry 4.0 is the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Connected devices and systems such as sensors, actuators, PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers), and industrial automation and control systems (IACS) provide real-time data that can be used for predictive maintenance, monitoring of quality, and identification of ways to reduce costs. However, any expansion in digitization and consequently the attack surface, must be accompanied by comprehensive measures against ever-present cyber threats.

Many manufacturers find that several of the security vulnerabilities that exist in their operations are relatively easy to find and fix – provided they have the right level of visibility in their processes. Equipping operations with capable visibility tools is an essential first step in the road to building a long-term secure solid foundation.

In this online seminar, we look forward to sharing with you how Cisco and our partners are helping manufacturers confidently build a robust foundation with a secure network architecture that removes blind spots from their processes, sets boundaries to limit cyber threats, improves operational agility, and provides the freedom to innovate.

Join this online seminar to learn about how you can:

  • Gain complete visibility across a range of industrial automation systems
  • Compartmentalize the production floor and regulate communications between systems
  • Drive agility across your operations with network automation, assurance, and policy
  • Follow guidance from lab-tested and validated designs to migrate your current network
