The Evolving Needs of Cybersecurity in Manufacturing

Today’s era of increased automation and connected operations has meant improvements in efficiency, quality, production, and safety. However, increased technology adoption has also increased the risk of cyberattacks to not just the office but also the plant floor. Because today’s cyberattacks can lead to not only a data breach but cripple manufacturing and distribution, and even affect personnel safety. Manufacturing companies need an effective cyber strategy and culture that is integrated with operations. Fortunately, just like protective gear, cyber programs can and should be right-sized based on a company’s risks. 

This webinar focuses on the evolving needs of cybersecurity for manufacturing companies, translating the culture of “if you can’t do it safely, it isn’t worth doing” into cybersecurity.

Key learnings: 

  • Learn about the evolving attack landscape where cybersecurity programs have evolved from just preventing data breaches to also preventing physical impacts to production, safety, etc.
  • Gain insights about how cybersecurity is becoming a strategic imperative and even a competitive differentiator or revenue source for manufacturing companies.
  • Understand new ways to build a cyber culture at their company where, just like safety, it is everyone’s responsibility.
  • Take away key questions to ask IT and OT leaders.

This webinar is designed for U.S., Canada, U.K., and globally based manufacturers.
