Innovative technologies broaden use of digital twins

In challenging and often disruptive times, manufacturers are relying on innovative technologies to deliver to global market needs.

Digital twins are virtual replicas of physical objects or systems. They use real-world data to run simulations of situations before actual devices are built and deployed, and predict different outcomes. Manufacturers then use this information to reduce maintenance issues, improve efficiency and production output.

Protecting manufacturing from cyber attacks

Adopting a risk-based approach and erecting defence-in-depth architecture to ensure business continuity is the best way to protect the manufacturing sector and other critical infrastructure.

Half of the manufacturing companies that took part in a recent survey in the US admitted they had suffered a data breach or cyber attack in the previous 12 months. Unfortunately, such attacks are part of a growing global trend as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) accelerates the convergence of the once separate domains of IT and operational technology (OT). This has made cyber security intrusions and threats not only more difficult to detect but also to prevent.

Aviation safety requires a holistic, systems-based approach

Protecting the aviation industry from physical and cyber threats is challenging

Keeping the aviation industry safe and secure from physical and cyber attacks and other risks linked to potential information and operational technology (IT and OT) issues is of utmost importance, but presents more challenges than do most other sectors.
