But it also is making you more vulnerable than ever before.

This hour-long webinar is the first in a series of events designed to enlighten Iowa factory managers, financial leaders, and technology heads about modern cybersecurity. Dave Nelson, president and CEO of Pratum, an information security consulting firm in Ankeny, will discuss the trade-offs at work between any company’s Informational Technology needs and its Operational Technology needs. Participants will learn about the need to create checkpoints between systems and balance competing interests. The goal is to gain the benefits of advanced technology without falling prey to ransomware, malware, phishing, or some other threat.
