Here are 20 of the most common cyberattacks that can occur on a daily basis:
Phishing Attacks: Deceptive emails or messages aimed at tricking employees into revealing sensitive information or downloading malware.
Ransomware Attacks: Malware that encrypts critical data and demands a ransom for its release, disrupting manufacturing operations.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attacks: Overwhelming a manufacturing company's network with excessive traffic to make systems and websites inaccessible.
Insider Threats: Misuse of authorized access by employees or contractors to steal sensitive data, commit sabotage, or cause disruptions.
Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs): Persistent and targeted attacks by skilled adversaries seeking unauthorized access, intellectual property theft, or operational disruption.
Social Engineering Attacks: Manipulating employees through psychological tactics to deceive them into revealing sensitive information or performing actions that benefit the attacker.
Unauthorized Access: Gaining unauthorized entry to manufacturing systems or networks, potentially leading to data theft, system disruption, or espionage.
Supply Chain Attacks: Targeting trusted vendors or suppliers to gain unauthorized access to a manufacturing company's network or systems.
Malware Infections: Infecting manufacturing systems or devices with malicious software, enabling unauthorized access, data theft, or disruption.
Password Attacks: Exploiting weak or stolen passwords to gain unauthorized access to manufacturing systems or user accounts.
Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) Attacks: Intercepting communication between devices or systems to eavesdrop, manipulate data, or steal information.
SQL Injection Attacks: Exploiting vulnerabilities in web applications to inject malicious SQL code, potentially gaining unauthorized access to databases.
Zero-day Exploits: Targeting previously unknown vulnerabilities in software or systems before patches or fixes are available.
IoT Device Exploitation: Exploiting vulnerabilities in Internet of Things (IoT) devices used in manufacturing to gain unauthorized access or disrupt operations.
Data Breaches: Unauthorized access or disclosure of sensitive manufacturing data, including intellectual property, customer information, or financial data.
Credential Stuffing: Using automated tools to test stolen login credentials across multiple platforms to gain unauthorized access.
USB-based Attacks: Spreading malware through infected USB drives or devices plugged into manufacturing systems.
Email Spoofing: Forging email headers or disguising sender information to deceive employees and gain unauthorized access or extract sensitive data.
Brute Force Attacks: Attempting to gain access to systems or user accounts by systematically trying numerous password combinations.
Web Application Attacks: Exploiting vulnerabilities in manufacturing company websites or web applications to gain unauthorized access or steal data.
Manufacturing companies should prioritize cybersecurity measures to protect against these common attacks, including employee training, regular system updates and patching, network monitoring, and implementing strong access controls.
