Event description

Description

Join us for The Importance of Cyber Security for Manufacturers with our speaker Pat Toth, Computer Scientist in the Programs and Partnerships Division at the NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnership. She will be sharing how technology has evolved and empowered manufacturers in a variety of ways, and companies have become increasingly reliant on computer systems and IT. Because of this, cybersecurity has emerged as such a critical topic in the industry.

Manufacturers are unfortunately a frequent target of hackers and attackers. According to a report from the U.S. Department for Homeland Security, manufacturing is the second highest industry with the most reported cyber attacks, only subsequent to the energy sector.

NOCO Manufacturing Partnership is proud co-host this event with Manufacturer's Edge and CAMA.
