Manufacturing Connect at Iceotope

Cyber Security, a real threat

Cyber Security is a real threat to manufacturers – Learn how will this impact your business and what steps you can take to protect yourself at this Yorkshire and Humber event.

Our Manufacturing Connect events are hosted at manufacturers' facilities and include a factory tour, enabling best practice and information sharing with your peers.

Recent cyber-attacks have had significant financial and reputational implications for some of the world’s most sophisticated businesses. UK Manufacturers are not immune from the threat.

It is estimated that nearly 50% of UK firms lack advanced cyber defences and the cost of cyber security incidents to March 2016 was put at £34.1bn. Even the most robust defences can be breached.

Hear from Howden, EEFs Insurance partner, who will take you through a possible mock attack and what the incident response would be; learn how your business can protect itself from a Cyber Attack and what actions you need to take.

Hear from EEF on the outputs of our recent research, the implications on your business and possible actions to mitigate.

Our hosts Iceotope will detail their technology which enables high performance, secure data storage and provide the opportunity for you to tour their facility at the AMRC Catapult in Sheffield.
