Manufacturing Cybersecurity

Defend your operational technology environment with SIEM

Reduce risk in your organization

Manufacturing cybersecurity solutions are critical as companies are seeing an increase in cyberattacks associated with control systems used to manage industrial operations.

But despite the importance of securing industrial manufacturing, many security professionals working in operational technology (OT) have limited resources and a lack of visibility, making it difficult to correlate log data across disparate systems.

To reduce cyber risk in manufacturing, you need a solution that extends across IT and OT to effectively combat cyberattacks. Watch how the LogRhythm SIEM platform matures your operations and streamlines visibility to scale your threat detection and response.

Manufacturing cybersecurity challenges

Digital transformation

Initiatives like Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 drive digital transformation in OT. But as connectivity in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) continues to accelerate and legacy technology remains in place, securing industrial control systems (ICS) becomes a larger challenge.

Vulnerable assets

Manufacturers are a high target for cybercriminals. Hackers seek to infiltrate intellectual property, customer financial information, and propriety information, as well as attack control systems that disrupt production processes.

Compliance and regulations

Manufacturers can face regulatory and compliance challenges with increasing and evolving environmental and safety standards.

Manufacturing cybersecurity use cases

Legacy industry-specific systems combined with new IoT-related technologies are susceptible to attacks. Here are some manufacturing cybersecurity use cases to consider:


Manufacturers have an extremely low tolerance for downtime with the production process. Attackers use malware to hack operational technology, such as ICS for financial gain.

Data exfiltration

Disgruntled employees have direct access to various systems and can act maliciously by carrying out unauthorized data transfers.

Third-party tactics

Adversaries leverage third parties to conduct espionage, steal proprietary information, or initiate a potentially disruptive OT attack.

Phishing attacks

Cybercriminals often reach out to other factory employees or executives from a victim’s corporate email address to solicit personal information, gain access to accounts, or for financial schemes.

Insider threats

Hackers can gain a foothold when employees are connecting to business networks from several devices, including mobile, instead of company-issued and vetted machines.
