The ongoing digitalization, in addition to providing many benefits, means that more and more machines are connected, which creates new attack surfaces that cybercriminals and foreign governments can exploit to achieve their goals. Goals that for the plant owner can result in significant costs in the form of production losses, leaked trade secrets or accidents with catastrophic consequences.
That cyber security is an important part of companies’ daily agenda and that the desire to learn more about this area was clearly shown in the high number of participants at the webinar. During the webinar the participants got the opportunity to listen to Hans Hansson, Professor in Real-Time Systems at Mälardalen University who talked about the cybersecurity threats that manufacturing companies need to be aware of and have strategies to handle, as well as how to work in a professional way to minimize the consequences of these risks.
Software inspiration for professionals
The webinar series Software inspiration for professionals is a new concept where we, together with the other organizations in our Vinnova funded project, Linneaus University, Mälardalen University, University West and Örebro University want to give the participants inspiration and new knowledge direct from experts from Swedish academia. The webinar series is a part of the Vinnova funded project “Kompetensbehov och kurser för yrkesverksamma inom IT och konkurrenskraftig produktion 2” and especially the learning4professionals.se part of the project.
Learning4professionals.se is a platform with the purpose to contribute to the continued development of industry’s skills development through courses specifically aimed at industry professionals, and by making the course offerings from universities easier to find.
