No individual or organization is safe from a cyberattack. And small to midsize businesses are some of the most vulnerable targets. Even if you only have one computer in your facility, you’re already at risk from a potential attack.

Join CBIA and CONNSTEP on Friday, October 12 for a discussion on cybersecurity for manufacturers. Hear from a Connecticut business whose proprietary information was hacked and learn how they recovered.

Get practical tips for supply chain management from a large defense manufacturer. Take away ideas on how to protect your business and its assets. Engage your employees with stronger online cybersecurity behaviors.

Speakers include:

  • David Huang,  Assistant U.S. Attorney
  • Carl Jackson, Engineering Director, Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company
  • Jean Lehman, NIST Standards Project Manager, Polaris MEP
  • Mario DiNatale, Cybersecurity Strategist
  • Ray Swanson, President and General Manager, Tornik

Receive a copy of the CBIA and Connecticut Small Business Development Center Cybersecurity Workbook. Based on NIST standards, it’s a great supplement to your current cybersecurity plan.

Breakfast will be served, beginning at 8 am.
