Join the Manufacturing Leadership Council virtually for an opportunity to take an inside look into MxD’s Chicago Innovation Center to learn about cybersecurity for operational technology.

As manufacturers continue to modernize facilities and implement digital technologies, the risk of cyberattack increases. According to a National Defense Industry Association study, over 35% of cyberattacks in the United States are targeted at manufacturers — more than any other business sector.

No matter a manufacturer’s size, industry or position within the supply chain, the threat of cyberattack is always present. Attacks on large companies can originate with the smaller, more vulnerable companies within their supply chains. Analyzing a company’s cybersecurity posture, therefore, requires examining its entire ecosystem in addition to looking at internal operations.

This reality, combined with the ever-growing number of cybersecurity standards and guidelines, can make the thought of cybersecurity implementation overwhelming for many companies. Since receiving its designation by the Department of Defense as the National Center for Cybersecurity in Manufacturing, MxD has brought resources and lessons learned directly to manufacturers facing these issues through workshops, webinars, workforce development programs and our 22,000-square-foot future factory located in Chicago.

MxD, which stands for “manufacturing times digital,” is where innovative manufacturers go to forge their futures. In partnership with DoD, MxD equips factories with the digital tools and expertise they need to begin building every part better than the last. As a result, its approximately 300 partners increase their productivity and win more business.
