Manufacturers face the mounting threat of a cyberattack as criminals look for new methods to make money and harm the reputation of organizations. When combined with a lack of investment in Information Security methods, this sets up for a dangerous environment. In fact, some recent Manufacturing Cybersecurity statistics include: 

  • Manufacturing is the 2nd most attacked industry, trailing only Healthcare
  • The FBI estimates that $400 billion worth of Intellectual Property is stolen from US Manufacturing firms each year
  • A hacker stays hidden inside an organization's network for an average of 140 days, planning how they will get sensitive information out of the organizationwelder-673559_1280.jpg

When you combine these factors with the limited regulatory environment for manufacturing firms, you have a dangerous situation developing.

The good news is that Compass has a suite of solutions to help Manufacturing companies protect their intellectual property and mitigate their risks of falling victim to a cyberattack.
