Protecting your manufacturing organization from potential cyber attacks is of the utmost importance. According to the U.S Department of Homeland Security, manufacturing is the second most targeted industry based on the number of recorded attacks. With small and medium-sized manufacturers being the most vulnerable to attacks, it is critical to understand and implement cybersecurity requirements.
As of December 31, 2017, all federal government contractors were required to meet the Defense Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) minimum cybersecurity requirements. Still, many small and medium-sized manufacturers maintain an inadequate understanding and ability to enhance their systems to run in accordance with the now 110 new security requirements.
