Manufacturing Cybersecurity: A Practical Discussion of the Last Ten Years

Dr. Kyle S. Saleeby is a Research Engineer in the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute.

Abstract: Trends of Industry 4.0 demand fully connected manufacturing supply chains for process monitoring and rapid analytics. Modern and legacy manufacturing systems are collecting, transmitting, and receiving more data than ever, opening critical infrastructure to the world. It’s no wonder that nearly 25% of all cyberattacks worldwide were performed against manufacturing companies in 2022, often leveraging surprisingly simple vulnerabilities.
This talk will cover recent manufacturing cybersecurity attacks and how they were performed. We’ll discuss a few of the leading research teams in both offense and defense fields, followed by ways to get involved with CyManII, the newest Manufacturing USA Institute dedicated to developing manufacturing cybersecurity techniques.

Bio: Dr. Kyle S. Saleeby is a Research Engineer in the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute.
