CYBERSECURITY FORUM for manufacturers

December 5, 2019: 8:00 am - 2:00 pm


Hackers are targeting manufacturers and looking for the weakest link in the defense supply chain. Is your business the link that breaks? Whether you’re a Tier 1 OEM or a family-owned machine shop, cyberattacks are happening. Denying the threat is risky, but so is delaying your defenses.

Recently, the U.S. Department of Defense announced a Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) for vendors. By June 2020 the DoD is expected to include certification requirements in Requests for Information (RFIs). A year from now, CMMC will become part of solicitations. Are you ready for these requirements? These requirements will be in addition to the existing DFARS 252.204-7012 cybersecurity clause which requires implementation of NIST SP 800-171.

Don’t let 2019 end without making cybersecurity a priority. Join FuzeHub, NIST MEP, the Advanced Institute for Manufacturing (AIM), NYSTAR and the Manufacturing and Technology Resource Consortium (MTRC) on Thursday, December 5th for the Cybersecurity Forum for Manufacturers at Stony Brook University.

The Speakers Include:

  • Keynote Speaker: Patricia R. Toth, Cybersecurity Manager at NIST MEP, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Network.
  • Jake Mihevc,  Dean of Cybersecurity at Mohawk Valley Community College (MVCC) and Director of the Regional Resource Center for the National Security Agency’s Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Program at MVCC
  • Paul LaPorte, Cybersecurity Coordinator at AIM
