Ransomware attacked, what now?

On Friday afternoon, the NHS was hit by a cyber attack of historic proportions, affecting trusts and public health services nationwide. This is a stark illustration that ransomware is a very real threat, and does not discriminate when it comes to crippling businesses. In a technology age where cyber attacks and being virtually held to ransom are the new normal, it’s absolutely critical to have a strategy in place to both combat attacks when they happen, and to ultimately prevent them before they do.

Reining in on industrial automation: The benefits of cloud computing in the manufacturing industry

The domestic canary isn’t what most of us would consider a tool for industrial labour.

As we enter the era of the smart factory, Johannes Petrowisch, Global Partner & Business Development Manager of industrial automation software expert, COPA-DATA, discusses the benefits of cloud computing for the manufacturing industry.
