Did you know that in 2019, 50% of organizations hit by cyber attacks were in the manufacturing sector?

Current manufacturing trends — including increases in smart technology, automation and (thank you, pandemic) remote workers – mean cybersecurity breaches are becoming more common and more costly. How would your company survive the theft of intellectual property? Could you recover from an attack that prevents you from filling customer orders?

Thankfully, there are steps Rhode Island manufacturers can take in 2021 to reduce risk and start strengthening cybersecurity defenses.

In this online event, expert panelists will discuss cybersecurity risks and ramifications and outline a path to protecting data AND your business contracts. The session begins with comments from Congressman Jim Langevin, who will share insights into Federal cybersecurity efforts.

Presented by the Rhode Island Manufacturers Association and featuring cybersecurity experts from Vertikal6 and Polaris MEP.
