Protecting Intellectual Property

Securing Trade Secrets and Proprietary Data

As manufacturers utilize advanced manufacturing to gain a competitive advantage over rivals, the implementation of innovative technologies introduces a new set of security risks. While these technologies add value to product development and manufacturing, we must be mindful to ensure they do not introduce unforeseen security vulnerabilities that could expose the organization and its data.

Globalization and supply chain expansion increases the demand for innovative technology and connectivity between manufacturers and vendors. Continuous communication can be great for improving efficiency, but it can also lead to the loss of manufacturer trade secrets and intellectual property (IP).

The threat of losing IP is a leading concern among manufacturers and clients. Security breaches jeopardize the confidentiality of proprietary data, which is why a strong security posture and diligent security culture can be a differentiator for manufacturers. Defending against these cyber-attacks may seem daunting, but with the right security approach, protection is attainable.
