Data Generation in Manufacturing and the Data Storage Management Challenges
Unlike the common thought process, the Manufacturing Industry does generate data.
The Digital Transformation wave sweeping across the industry makes them embrace emerging technologies like AI, and modern digital communication channels, which thrive on data.Plant data management and secure effective communication form the core of their quest to create a modern, digital, and streamlined process for the future.
The growth of data in Manufacturing
Industry 4.0 is all about intelligent and interconnected devices. These devices gather data utilized by digital systems to enhance the device's performance.
Manufacturing Companies are rapidly seeking to sync their Information Technology and Operational Technology processes for efficiency and enhanced customer service.This collaboration among the manufacturing, IT, and automation teams means sharing data, insights, and business communication and holding on to it for a long-time using an effective data retention policy and robust data storage management tools.
What’s at Stake for Manufacturers with inadequate data storage management
Manufacturing companies, in general, are targeted for information on their manufacturing processes, especially for high-demand products. They are targeted for intellectual property, trade secrets, and patented designs and technology.
Manufacturing Companies are likely to face security threats like web application attacks, cyber espionage, corporate espionage, operational downtime, product manipulation, etc. Additionally, manufacturers work in association with other vendors, which means a threat anywhere in the complete process exposes others.
Financial loss, brand erosion, and litigations are some of the major risks of an inadequate data retention policy or a lack of a robust data storage management system.Related: Small businesses and the cost of poor data management
Challenges to Data Storage Management and Protection for Manufacturers
The most likely source of security breaches is the human aspect. The overlapping areas of technology, along with people and processes, are the areas that leave the system ajar and let risk seep in.
Current employees, who fall prey to phishing or are not careful enough with handling their emails, are the foremost source. Followed by former employees, who somehow have access to their mails and email backup software, competitors and hackers are equally responsible for security threats.
The risk to data is proportional to the number of employees having access to it without security protocols.
