Cyber Security in Industry 4.0 (IEEE) Using Emerging Technology to Improve Compliance As cyber threats, malicious software, and cyber-attacks continue to escalate in sophistication, and no industry can remain immune to these threats.
The IEEE has used industry-inspired advances in innovation and implementation to promote the highest level of cyber-security standards for the most robustly protected information and communication technology infrastructure, from networks and telecommunication systems through websites, digital certificates, and passwords, and other software-based systems (Ardito et al., 2019).
This Enhanced Canada Cyber-security Standards and Certificates (ECCS&C) project strives to provide a common framework for enhanced cyber-security across all sectors. The fourth industrial revolution is referred to as cyber-security in Industry 4.0 and is encompassing three discrete components: machine learning, artificial intelligence, and automation.
The effects of these four technologies will most certainly impact the processes and processes aspects of technology adoption. Over the next decade, we will most certainly see further and the further rise of robotics (Ardito et al., 2019).
The industrial revolution will begin with smart factory security systems. For now, those systems are secure, but many manufacturers will soon provide safeguards against attack and malware threats to help prevent malware attacks and lawsuits. The processes can look simple like a boiler next to a giant hexagon.
For example, all these processes would trigger heating or cooling at some point, and the heating or cooling can be controlled by digital control boxes connected to a smart grid (Shi et al., 2019).
The industrial network will soon have more people connected in more complex networks, such as industrial warehouses. All of these buildings can communicate with each other and can remotely activate or deactivate automation systems to reduce manufacturing costs.
The need for the defence, control, and monitoring of systems and networks. The blockchain is the most viable platform for these purposes (Shi et al., 2019).
Decentralisation is gaining respect and confidence on a global scale, and so there is a renewed emphasis on the blockchain in the industry.
There is an abundance of articles on the blockchain’s potential and benefits for companies. For example, more than fifty articles are covering the blockchain’s potential for authentication, threat modelling, and development of social payment interfaces. Companies are beginning to explore smart contracts and smart systems for security, reputation, and data.
All in all, it seems that all the evidence points to blockchain technology as the future of the financial industry (Shi et al., 2019).

Cyber Security in Industry 4.0
The core objective of the research is to assess the various forms of cyber-security in various industries with a key focus on hyper connectivity of technological systems.
In the current era of the emergence of new forms of technology, the wide range of cyber-security strategies has resulted in effective security solutions to combat the increased cyber threats in organisation and industries (Dawson, 2018).
Notably, the hyper connectivity of modern technologies has enhanced the effectiveness of security. Research findings indicate that the evolution of cyber-security occurred as a result of the advancement of various attacks on confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information in digital technologies.
Besides, researchers reveal that cyber-security in industries involves the integration of modern technologies, such as cloud computing, the use of robotics, the internet of everything, the internet of things, and other relevant developments.
Modern technology connections help industries in enhancing effective communication, risk visibility, and effective identification and risk mitigation (Dawson, 2018).
Importantly, research reflects on the various pitfalls to the various hyper connected systems as a result of vulnerabilities to attacks, loopholes that support the attacks, and lack of security awareness among the employees in industries.
In the current era of proliferation of modern technologies, industries can utilise effective strategies of enhancing the effectiveness of hyper connectivity and the process of developing security policies and awareness among all the involved stakeholders (Benson, McAlaney, & Frumkin, 2019).
The implications of cyber-security are promising as a result of government efforts of enhancing technology and security, cultivation of IT experts, and advancements in mobile information access.
I will conduct comprehensive research on the need for embracing the culture of defence and using safe and legit sites of sharing information. Industries will have to embark on timely updates of applications, regular backup of files, and software updates.
