Security Guide for Factory

Security Guide for Factory (English edition, April 2019)

This document has been developed for people working at a manufacturing site, which adopts wireless communications, in order to raise their security awareness, and to summarize security issues and countermeasures to be aware of at a site.

It reflects the opinions from manufacturing sites and is written to be understandable even for non security professionals/experts to grasp the important points.

We are glad this guide will be utilized and will help to take appropriate security measures to each manufacturing site.
