In drawing parallels to what happened to security in digital transformations and in industrial automation, the author emphatically states that companies need to transform from an engineering/manufacturing mindset to also include software as a key ingredient to their make-up. Remote compromises via hacking could be dangerous and potentially life threatening. There is also a need to deploy over the air updates quickly and efficiently.
