Cybersecurity Compliance Event: Sept. 28, 2018

Northwest State Community College, the Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership and the Advanced Manufacturing Consortium will be hosting a very important informational cybersecurity event on Friday, September 28 at the Northwest State Archbold Campus in Room C200.

This cybersecurity event is geared toward small to medium-sized businesses, suppliers to the Department of Defense and their supply chains, automotive manufacturing companies and their supply chains, and manufacturers in general. Some of the topics that are scheduled to be covered include the DFARS Mandate and what it means, NIST cybersecurity framework, risk assessment and gap analysis, and new developments such as Ohio Senate SB220 and the NIST SB Cybersecurity Act.

“The manufacturing sector is the second-most popular target for cyberattacks.  Fortunately, there are industry standards and best practices that businesses can put in place to reduce their risk.  We are very pleased to host this event and allow this information to be shared with area businesses,” said Todd Hernandez, vice president for innovation and chief information officer at Northwest State.
