Cybersecurity and Wisconsin Manufacturers: Risks & Deadlines

This free webinar will be hosted by Pat Tosh of NIST and Wil Cox from WMEP. Both of whom were integral in the creation of the new Dept. of Defense Cybersecurity Standards.

Cybersecurity is big deal for Wisconsin Manufacturers and other businesses. A quick story illustrates this point. At our most recent Manufacturing Matters! Conference on March 1st, we hosted a breakout session on cybersecurity. The speaker at this session queried the session's attendees and found that four companies in the audience had recently been victims of Ransomware attacks. One of the four companies had its own back-up system, so it elected not to pay the ransom fee. The other three paid the ransomware. One of the companies was forced to pay twice while one had to set up a Bitcoin account to pay their ransom.
