A forum to help Long Island manufacturers protect against cyber attacks takes place Thursday at Stony Brook University’s Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology Building, or CEWIT.
Held by FuzeHub, the statewide New York Manufacturing Extension Partnership center, the forum will focus on the latest trends in cybersecurity. It includes a cyber assessment workshop that will examines new U.S. Department of Defense requirements that affect all defense contractors, as they must comply with the latest edicts.
“Cyber threats are rising, and manufacturers locally and nationwide are susceptible to attack, especially if they have contracts with the Department of Defense,” FuzeHub Executive Director Elena Garuc said in a statement.
“New York State has an extensive network of cybersecurity experts ready to answer questions and solve challenges to help companies secure their systems and strengthen their defenses against new and emerging risks,” she added.
For this forum, FuzeHub is partnering with the MEP National Network, the Manufacturing and Technology Resource Consortium at SBU, the Advanced Institute for Manufacturing at Mohawk Valley Community College, MilTech and NYSTAR (Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology and Innovation).
The forum begins at 8 a.m.
