International Conference in Industry 4.0: A Global Revolution in Business, Technology, and Productivity (MYINDUSTRIES 2019) will be from 5th – 7th September 2019 at SEGi University, Malaysia. Through its technical program, the conference aims to provide an outstanding opportunity for both academic and industrial communities alike to address new trends and challenges, emerging technologies and progress in standards on topics relevant to today’s fast-moving areas of Industry 4.0.
A new revolution known as Industry 4.0 is occurring where countless elements comprising industrial systems are being interfaced with internet communication technologies to form the smart factories and manufacturing organisations of the future. Industry 4.0 and its associated technologies are currently being driven by disruptive innovation that promises to bring countless new value creation opportunities across all major market sectors. However, existing Internet technologies are plagued by cyber security and data privacy issues that will present major challenges and roadblocks for adopters of Industry 4.0 technologies.
Industry 4.0 will face traditional cyber security issues along with its very own unique security and privacy challenges. If these challenges are not appropriately addressed, the true potential of Industry 4.0 may never be achieved. This chapter provides a brief overview of several key Industry 4.0 technologies and paradigms in order to give the reader a better understanding of the cyber security aspects of the remaining chapters in the book.
It’s no secret that Industry 4.0, or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has the power to drive true quantifiable change in both manufacturing and service-based industries. The immediate bottom-line benefits are clear: fewer machine failures, reduced scrap and downtime issues, and improved throughput – to name a few. However, there are additional, less quantifiable, benefits of implementing this technology.
