Cybersecurity Resources for Small to Medium-Sized Manufacturers: A Fireside Chat with the NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) 

May 2 NIST MEP webinar promo banner

Event Date: May 2, 2024

Event Time: 2:00 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. ET

Event Location: Virtual

Event Description:

Join us on May 2, 2024, for a 30-minute fireside chat with the NIST MEP Program Office. During this webinar we will highlight the cybersecurity resources available to the nation’s small and medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs).

SMMs are increasingly relying on data, information, and technologies to run their operations in a competitive and efficient manner. With this increased reliance on technology and connectivity comes an increased cybersecurity threat surface to the business and to the entire supply chain in which they contribute.

Defending an SMM’s assets from cybersecurity threats can be challenging. However, because these organizations often have less complex information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) infrastructures, many can more readily take basic steps to defend their information and systems. 

The MEP National Network helps manufacturers of all sizes manage their cybersecurity and privacy risks by providing guidance, solutions, and training that is practical, actionable, and cost-effective.  

During this webinar, we’ll have a robust discussion to provide attendees with:

  • An introduction to the MEP National Network
  • An overview of the MEP cybersecurity services and resources
  • Basic steps an SMM can take to manage their cybersecurity risks
  • Information about how to locate an MEP Center in your area

We’ll reserve time at the end of the webinar to address questions.
