Hitachi Review

Highlight

Many industries typically have long upgrade cycles for plant production lines and production control systems, and are often still using old machines. In the past, systems were protected by having no connections to external networks, however, since external connections have become unavoidable due to the growing use of big data and the IoT, systems are becoming increasingly vulnerable to security threats. To address this issue, Hitachi has proposed a method of improving security that uses templates to reduce the workload on production sites. The concept behind this method divides security measures into three whitelists that prioritize affinity with production lines and production control systems.
