By Maureen Brakke, PR & Marketing Manager You might have heard over and over again that your business NEEDS a cybersecurity plan. However, have you often thought that your business won’t get hacked because you have nothing of value for hackers? Or because you use virus protection software, firewalls, and passwords, you’ll be ok? Ask yourself these questions. Do you: Use email? Use the internet? Have bank accounts?

According to the Online Trust Alliance (OTA), a non-profit that works to develop tools and best practices that enhance internet security, cyberattacks targeting manufacturers and others nearly doubled in volume from the previous year. The worst of the worst? WannaCry, which struck in May 2017, infecting approximately 300,000 computer systems, encrypting files and demanding a Bitcoin payment to decrypt them. While large manufacturers may become victims due to their name and the news value,...
By Tab Wilkins There’s no question the digital manufacturing revolution is racing at us. As a small or medium-sized manufacturer, how close are you to already being “smart”? Here are five steps in the journey to becoming a smarter digital enterprise. First and foremost, be cybersecure. Cybersecurity is an underlying tenant of being a smart and trusted business partner.
