The future role of energy in Manufacturing. Energy Security

Energy security—the continuous availability of energy in varied forms, in sufficient quantities, and at reasonable prices—has many aspects. It means limited vulnerability to transient or longer disruptions of imported supplies. It also means the availability of local and imported resources to meet, over time and at reasonable prices, the growing demand for energy. Political, environmental challenges, liberalisation and deregulation, and the growing dominance of market forces all have profound implications for energy security.

Cybersecurity for Manufacturing and Critical Infrastructure

Protecting IT and OT Resources Against Advanced Threats in Manufacturing and Critical Infrastructure. The convergence of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) has a significant impact on manufacturing cybersecurity. Specifically, industrial control systems (ICS) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems that have historically been air gapped are now being connected to IT systems—and therefore to the internet. As the air gap is removed, these systems are vulnerable to an increasingly advanced threat landscape and are targets for hackers involved in terrorism, cyber warfare, and espionage.
