A Digital Badge for Cyber Awareness
As more and more manufacturing facilities become connected, the likelihood that their connected equipment will be hacked increases. The TRACKS-CN team determined that a digital badge is an effective way to spread cybersecurity awareness to technicians within the realm of Operational Technology (OT) in robotics/automation/mechatronics (RAM).
The 11 competencies covered by the badge were selected from a list of 54 competencies published by the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE). The 11 competencies tie to advanced manufacturing.
