Robots are now hanging out in our factories, and that can only mean one thing: Industry 4.0. We’ve just entered a new decade and we’re also in a new phase of industry where factories are smart, robots are our co-workers and warehouses can run by themselves! These changes open up a load of opportunities, but they also expose factories, offices and warehouses to new cyber risks.

What is Industry 4.0?

Industry 4.0 is one of the most important trends impacting how we work, which is why it’s the theme for the CyberCenturionVI National Final! The 15 finalist teams will meet at a secret location on 26th February to compete in a series of Industry 4.0-themed challenges. The senior winners will fly to the U.S. to visit Northrop Grumman’s headquarters and visit some other once-in-a-lifetime sites.

Keep an eye on the Hub, Twitter and Instagram to follow the teams and see how they do in the Final!
