Data security in mechanical engineering – a beginner’s guide


There’s no doubt that digitalisation is fundamentally changing mechanical engineering. Companies have to act fast to ensure they aren’t left behind in the wake of these rapid technical advances. As a result of digitalisation and the Internet of Things, networked structures are becoming an increasingly important part of industrial production. The digital implementation of 3D constructions and the information exchanged between engineers and customers are just two examples of the ever-increasing volumes of digital data generated by day-to-day operations. Although digital collaboration makes a lot of processes more efficient, the ever-growing density of data is also placing increased demands on security. After all, this information often includes, among other things, specialist expertise that is highly sought-after worldwide or data crucial to completing projects on time. It goes without saying that this kind of data needs to be protected against unauthorised access to prevent theft or ...
