There is not one end user in the industry that does not want to make sure he or she has a secure system, device, or procedure.
There is not one end user in the industry that does not want to make sure he or she has a secure system, device, or procedure. It is a constant dance making sure everything is secure and keeping the bad guys out, while also running at full tilt to generate as much product as possible.
End users need their suppliers to knock out any kinks in the process before it hits their system.
But the challenging part is how to tell the device is secure or just something the supplier will tap dance around thinking it will be able to hold off the barrage of cyber attacks that can hit a device, or system, each day.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
