This isn’t My First Automount Machine: An Approach to Making Manufacturing Security a Success [End User Perspective]

The current processes of managing security inside a manufacturing environment is badly flawed. Most security programs are based on defined sets of competencies that do not take into effect the manufacturing environment but that of only a corporate office environment. You cannot put a factory into a cage and expect it to behave as any other environment. Manufacturing are living creatures that need a different type of attention, diet and care.  

This session will present a discussion on a holistic approach to manufacturing security assessments and manufacturing security programs, and discuss why we should be looking at process and people before we start to consider technology solutions.

Security Assessments and Audits are conducted solely through questionnaire or interviews: The approach uses observations of process, behaviors, then with a bit of blue and red team work combined; This method will not only identify security gaps but also specifically address priorities to keep costs low for manufacturing environments.

Learning Objectives:
  • A proactive approach to security without having to purchase the latest shiny technology;
  • Using a process approach through observations and learning the manufacturing environment while still applying traditional security methods produces better results; 
  • Recognizing that people are your greatest defense against security but also can be the weakest link over shiny new technology;
