Collaborative robots can be one of the safest parts of your production setup. Both in regards to human–machine interaction and the ever-rising threat of cyberattacks. The bad news: collaborative robots are going to be working in environments where all parts of your production – and company in general – will increasingly become connected and online. Something often referred to as Industry 4.0. While this development holds incredible promise, in regards to efficiency, productivity and innovation, it also has its dark sides. Bringing more parts of your company online can increase your vulnerability to cyberattacks.
