Where does mainframe security figure into the Industry 4.0 era?

The crown jewels of Industry 4.0

The fourth industrial revolution, Industry 4.0, is a new technological vision for the entire IT world in which mainframe security plays a crucial role. In this world, the mainframe contains roughly 75 percent of enterprise data and 65 percent of active code.

We know the first three industrial revolutions very well, but this one is a little different because it goes beyond the Internet of Things (IoT). This fourth revolution is based on the strong relationship between machines and human resources that enables virtual reality (VR), thanks to cognitive computing and the evolution of artificial intelligence (AI).

With any new technology, security must be implemented by design and by default. It’s important to establish accurate and thorough processes for creating policies, checking for vulnerabilities, conducting audits, issuing alerts, responding to incidents and managing risk. The mainframe assists security teams with all of the above.

But the primary responsibility of security professionals is to protect data, the crown jewels of Industry 4.0.
