The industrial sector is increasingly becoming a target for hackers, with vulnerabilities being discovered in various areas such as industrial control systems and network endpoints. These vulnerabilities are not only being exploited in large manufacturers and infrastructure enterprises, but also in key suppliers, logistics providers, and distributors. Dor Dali, Head of Security Research at Cyolo, suggests that creating and maintaining a comprehensive Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) is a good place to start in addressing these vulnerabilities. He also recommends using tools such as Software Composition Analysis (SCA), Container Security, and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) to secure supply chains. Dali emphasizes the importance of combining Remote Privileged Access Management (RPAM) with Software Composition Analysis (SCA) to strengthen the security of supply chains. In the next 12-18 months, the manufacturing infrastructure cybersecurity is expected to see trends such as increased adoption of AI and machine learning for predictive threat analysis, a greater emphasis on Software Bill of Materials (SBOM), and the development of comprehensive supply chain risk management programs.
