Cyber-Security for Manufacturing: How Vulnerable is YOUR Company?

Engineering.com states that Cyber-security is manufacturing’s biggest risk! Manufacturing was the 2nd most targeted industry for cyber-attacks in 2015. Does your company have a plan? What are the security risks at your company and how can they be managed? Insecure firms stand to lose a large amount of business, with 66% of consumers unlikely to do business with organizations responsible for exposing information. With cyber crime costs projected to reach $2 trillion by 2019 (Forbes) defending networks from cyber-attacks is no easy task. Manufacturing companies must have a thoughtful strategy to protect their business, employees and clients.

Our panel of cyber security risk experts will provide you with invaluable insights on the legal, technical and financial ramifications of a cyber attack at your manufacturing company. This is a program that your company cannot afford to miss!
