Our white paper discusses the need for cybersecurity to ensure your manufacturing company is protected and thriving in today's world.

A compromised password. That’s all it took for hackers to take down the largest fuel pipeline in the U.S. last year, which led to gas shortages and higher fuel prices across the East Coast. The cost was even more for the cyberattack victim, Colonial Pipeline. It has been reported that Colonial Pipeline paid a $4.4 million ransom to a Russia-linked cybercrime group and hired a cybersecurity firm to consult on its cyber defenses to help ward off future attacks. 

 As if manufacturers don’t already have enough on their plates during this unique time facing unprecedented demand as well as labor shortages and supply chain challenges, they are being tasked with having to determine how technology can help them thrive while at the same time needing to protect themselves from possible cyberattacks.
