Manufacturing Cybersecurity

Manufacturing cybersecurity is an interdisciplinary domain requiring expertise spanning robotics, industrial automation, and embedded systems engineering. Most organizations offering security services are focused on information technology (IT) or have expertise in only one aspect of cybersecurity—hardware, software, or communications. Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) takes a holistic approach to robot and manufacturing cybersecurity, leveraging technical staff with experience in all relevant areas of security, cyber-physical systems, and manufacturing technology. For more than 10 years, we have helped customers secure their systems against cyber-attacks.
