If you believe cyber criminals exclusively target technology or larger companies because of their rich transactional and confidential data, you would be mistaken. Small to mid-size manufacturers have troves of critical IP and confidential data making them just as valuable and vulnerable to cyberattacks. But Manufactures share a big difference, they also have large parts of their operations run by robotics and automation using new technologies like RPA and IoT. Because these technologies are newer, they have big opportunities for cyber criminals to exploit and breach. Manufacturers also have a much smaller or non-existent cybersecurity budget to combat this growing threat.
