MA Webinar Series: Cybersecurity & Risk Management

All of the connectivity offered by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is beneficial to your operation, but it also presents a more vulnerable attack surface. Why do we need to secure our industrial control systems? And more importantly, how do we do it?

In this webinar, the last of our 2019 ERP Best Practices series, speaker Jonathan Gross, managing director of vendor-neutral ERP consulting firm Pemeco Consulting, will discuss security pain points across the enterprise and how manufacturers can respond to threats.
