Cybersecurity for Manufacturing

The preferred advisor helping the industrial sector mitigate cyber threats


It’s no secret that threat actors are interested in intellectual property theft that targets new products and manufacturing processes. Due to its increasing advances in technology, the risk in security of these technologies likewise increases. In order to protect the integrity of the manufacturing process, industrial supplies regularly undergo audits, penetration testing and staff training to meet compliance requirements.

As organisations look to move from reactive to proactive cybersecurity strategies, many are looking to partner with cyber security companies such as Gridware to build frameworks that can accommodate the emerging threat vectors faced by the manufacturing industry.


The rise of ransom-based malware that is used to crypto-lock data until the criminal is paid a ransom, has made it easier than ever for hackers to lock up critical data and devices, crippling manufacturing operations

Intellectual Property Theft

Confidential data loss costs more than just money and can have a lasting effect on customer retention. IP theft can be very damaging for a organisation if their trade secrets were to fall into the wrong hands

Supply Chain Attacks

Any cyber breach that affects organisations within the supply chain can adversely affect the integrity of the manufacturing process


Almost 80% of cyber-attacks that affected manufacturing facilities resulted in substantial business disruption with operations halted on average for 28 days or more before operations returned to normal

Case Study


In February 2019, Toyota Australia announced that its Melbourne warehouses were infected with ransomware. While it was believed that no employee or customer information had been accessed, their phone and email systems were brought down and day-to-day activities were shutdown. Whilst the business disruption lasted over a week, Toyota refused to reveal further information about the remediation activities undertaken.
