Manufacturers face
growing cyber risk

Manufacturers may not regard their sector as a prime target for cyber criminals. But as operations increasingly depend on data and connectivity – from software automation and industrial control systems to Internet of Things sensors and cloud technologies – something as simple as a malware attack via email could infiltrate the entire production environment. So it’s crucial for manufacturers to safeguard their business-critical systems and the intellectual property that gives them a competitive advantage.

At RSA, we believe it’s vital these emerging cyber risks are explored as part of a wider insurance programme. Our Cyber Risk policy is designed to work alongside traditional insurance to cover manufacturers for all types of cyber risk, providing expert incident management response to limit the damage if an attack occurs, and financial redress for business interruption.
