Industrial robots are increasingly vulnerable to cyberattacks. Making this equipment secure is a fundamental challenge in the combat to protect production activities from malevolent acts and their related risks.

SERMA Safety & Security provides support to manufacturers that use robotics to help them identify cyberthreats and related recommendations, before drawing up and implementing a security policy.

“If you put your own code online, you can completely alter the work performed [by the robot] on its object, create defects, stop production or do anything you wish. Your imagination is the only limit.” Federico Maggi, researcher at the Polytechnic University of Milan.
