Industry 4.0 ensembles the interface of many different technologies. When combined together, the security challenges are not limited to the challenges in the separate technologies only. Security and privacy challenges in Industry 4.0 can be thought of as the sum of all the challenges of individual components in addition to the security issues of the interface between these technologies.

Artificial Intelligence, with the rapid growth in its applications, also brings new security and privacy challenges. These challenges were clearer with the introduction of GDRP.
