Event description
Join CIRAS and three Iowa cybersecurity firms for a wide-ranging discussion of the benefits & problems with business in the information age.

About this event

Technology is changing faster than it ever has, and that's creating serious new risk for Iowa manufacturers. A rapidly advancing wave of industrial progress – faster computers, better automation, plentiful sensors, and sophisticated data analysis – promises to make your company more productive than it's ever been. It also is making you more vulnerable than ever before.

Join CIRAS and three Iowa cybersecurity firms for a wide-ranging discussion of the benefits and problems associated with the business in the information age.

The conversation will include:

​Pratum, an information security consulting firm in Ankeny, discussing the need to balance the benefits of advanced technology against the risks of falling prey to ransomware, malware, phishing, or some other threat.

Experts from ProCircular, a privacy and information security experts firm in Coralville, discussing federal cybersecurity regulations and the data security requirements faced by a factory or other firm who does business with the federal government.

Experts from ACS, a Des Moines-based information technology company, discussing the mix of dangers and rewards that comes with an Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled factory – including a discussion of real-world cyberattacks on IoT equipment.

Winsor Consulting, a consulting and service firm with proven expertise in securing your business especially for federal contracting.
