As technology advances, industrial and manufacturing companies are bracing for an increase in cyber threats over the coming  years.  A Kaspersky Labs report published in early October states that in the first half of 2017, manufacturing companies were the most susceptible to cyber threats: their computers accounted for about one third of all attacks. The rising exploitation of digital technologies, dependence on connected infrastructures, cost-minded operational concepts and the lack of cyber security training leaves the industry prone to new threats. In this session we will discuss not only the technology and threats, but also practical ways to improve your security posture.

Industry experts Chris May and Jack Shaffer with Advantage Technology will share information about the threats faced by your company and answer your questions about preventative measures. 

Join a panel of industry leaders and experts to discuss compliance with the new regulation, how the law has been implemented in neighboring states, and ways our members are approaching this new regulation. Time will be provided for Q&A at the close of the program. We appreciate questions in advance by email to patty@wvma.com (please note Trend Talk Question in the subject line of your email).
