Kymera Cyber AttacksFind out what you need to be aware of in protecting your business from cybersecurity threats during a webinar offered at no cost by Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium (EMC).

For many small and medium sized manufacturers, the importance of cybersecurity is not fully understood until it has a negative impact on their business. Many also believe they are protected from cyber risks when they are not, and often don’t have robust strategies, processes or training in place to deal with the complex issues that can arise. With the increasing use of automation, advanced manufacturing processes and IOT connecting industry with customers and their supply chains, EMC believes manufacturers must prepare themselves for the threats that exist. In 2017, 28% of medium sized and 19% of small businesses in Canada experienced cyber incidents, resulting in an average of 24 and 22 hours of downtime respectively. The average cost of a cyber breach in Canada was $6.11 million in 2017.  

Participants in the May 14 webinar will gain an understanding of

    • what they need to know about cybersecurity
    • critical issues for manufacturers
    • cybersecurity best practices
    • manufacturing solutions

The webinar will be presented by N-Dimension Solutions, a cybersecurity technology provider for critical infrastructure.

EMC in partnership N-Dimension Solutions, recently launched EMC Secure program, which provides 13,000 active consortium members with access to the N-Sentinel cybersecurity technology platform as well as solutions designed to help prevent costly cyber intrusions that can cripple a business.

“Our members across Canada continue to share concerns and examples of Cyber threats they have faced,” says Shawn Casemore, President of EMC. “We have recognized that as an organization built on supporting our members needs we needed to quickly bring to manufacturers across Canada a robust cyber security solution that will ensure the security of information, while diminishing potential risks. The resources and tools that N-Dimension provides in our new Cyber Security program have been proven to be the most effective solution to protecting our members.”

David GordonBy David Gordon

COVID-19 has heightened the benefit of, and interest in, eCommerce for electrical distributors. Our second and third COVID-19 Electrical Market Sentiment Reports have shown that those with an eCommerce offering have seen online sales increases. Further, from conversations with distributors, their site activity increased. The benefit is that these companies had lower sales declines (and some increases), and were able to better serve their customers.

A further benefit is that their remote workforce had access to an online resource, other than manufacturers, for quick, easy, product research.
