Like every industry, manufacturing has experienced an increase in cyberattacks. Valuable intellectual property, financial systems and details about customers are all available to hackers who can breach your IT security defences.
And as the Industry 4.0 revolution gathers pace, manufacturers are deploying more digital systems throughout their factories and production lines. IoT smart sensors, new control systems and new management applications are helping your business become more efficient – and creating additional opportunities for hackers to launch attacks.
Regular penetration tests will help you identify potential vulnerabilities and better protect your business against cyberattack. Fidus can help you:
Fidus consultants will help you understand your current security posture and how effective it will be in defending your business. We’ll also build you an action plan of improvements.
Your regulatory compliance obligations don’t just apply to your products – you also have a duty to protect the data stored in your computer systems. If your business stores personal data belonging to employees or customers for instance, you must comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Similarly, if you take card payments from your customers, each transaction needs to comply with the PCI DSS regulations. The way in which data is transmitted, processed and stored must be secured against loss or interception.
Failure to comply with either PCI DSS or GDPR can result in huge fines – up to €20m in some cases. To help you avoid non-compliance, Fidus consultants can test your systems and identify security vulnerabilities that need to be addressed – before you fail an audit or fall victim to hackers.

A vulnerability we were asked to hold back from releasing for a whole year. A […]
Introduction Quiplash – a game full of wit, banter and borderline acceptable humour… and security consultants on a lunch break. To set the scene, the date was 19th February 2020 and the mood was cheerful in the Fidus office. Lunch had just been delivered and today was the day that Mario Kart was not going […]
