Customer Background

The government’s push for Industry 4.0 is driving digital transformation in SMEs, bringing them closer to digital technologies like networks and cloud computing. However, this also exposes them to cybersecurity risks, making SMEs prime targets for hackers. Despite some SMEs believing their size makes them less appealing to hackers, this mindset often leads to vulnerabilities that attackers exploit.

The Challenges
Issue 1 In the digital transformation to Industry 4.0 in traditional industries, cybersecurity is often neglected. Issue 2 Factory production lines and machinery lack cybersecurity safeguards.
Small and Medium Business are no longer afraid of cyber-criminals. Even without dedicated IT personnel, they can still have cybersecurity protection.

The company located in Tainan, specializes in manufacturing rubber and silicone products. Despite the critical role of their factory’s production line, which is equipped with numerous PLC machines, they initially overlooked cybersecurity during their transition to Industry 4.0. Consequently, their networked PLC machines lacked any cybersecurity mechanism. Although they have not yet experienced significant cybersecurity attacks affecting operations, potential threats could disrupt their OT network or halt production. Common cybersecurity challenges for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) include limited budgets, manpower shortages, lack of expertise, and knowledge limitations. These challenges often result in inadequate cybersecurity defense, posing potential operational risks and crises.
