Cybersecurity training video available for manufacturers

According to the 2017 IBM X-Force Threat Intelligence Index, the manufacturing sector was the second highest industry that experienced cyber attacks in 2016. This is largely why the DoD implemented its cybersecurity requirements listed in NIST 800-171 as mandatory for manufacturers to be part of the Defense supply chain.

Our cybersecurity workshops, sponsored by the DoD Office of Economic Adjustment, focus on how manufacturers can be compliant and cyber ready for the future. The workshops are led by Dr. Clifford Neuman, a renowned cybersecurity expert and director of USC’s Center for Computer Systems Security.
