Lifecycle Insights CAD security study

Today’s manufacturing companies face an ever-present threat; information technology security. More and more organizations are finding their intellectual property at risk, thanks to bad actors entering their design and development environments.

To gain clear insight into the state of CAD security, Lifecycle Insights conducted a bespoke study. The results of this survey-based research project reveal the issues companies face related to CAD security, and the strategies they are adopting to manage those risks. This eBook shares the study findings, as well as recommendations for developing an effective plan to combat common CAD security failures. Here’s what you can expect to find.

It is easy to see why a CAD security vulnerability could wreak havoc on design and development. Depending on the circumstances, data could be permanently deleted, corrupted to the point that it is no longer useful, or encrypted as part of a ransomware attack.

Protecting IP

Fifty-four percent of respondents said it was a top-three concern for their organizations. When ranked, it features as the second most important security concern.
