AIM Cybersecurity Workshop: January 11, 2017

Together with the Central New York Technology Development Organization, the Advanced Institute for Manufacturing (AIM) is proud to announce a FREE cyber security workshop on Wednesday, January 11. Held at the Onondaga Community College (4585 W Seneca Turnpike, Syracuse, NY), this workshop will run from 9:00am – 1:00pm. The local Workforce Development Institute is sponsoring the event and there is no fee to attend. This workshop will highlight the cyber threats to company information and products that manufacturers face on a daily basis. Registration for the event is open to manufacturers in Oneida, Herkimer, Fulton, Montgomery, Otsego, and Schoharie counties.

This workshop emphasizes the importance of cyber security in manufacturing, as manufacturing is the second most targeted industry by cyber-attackers. Many manufacturers assume their businesses are too small to be a concern, and this mindset often has disastrous consequences. On January 11, manufacturers will learn how to assess their cyber security, protect their businesses from threats, and act in the event of a cyber-attack.

Cyber security is not simply about protecting a business from a mysterious hacker in a far-off place. It is about making sure that business information is protected from company espionage, disgruntled employees, personal enemies, natural disasters, and much, much more. Threats to a company’s information can come from many directions, and business owners need to find protection from all of them. This workshop will help manufacturers navigate the crucial topic of cyber security and provide them with the equipment, skills, and knowledge necessary for a secure company.
