Fenestration Manitoba has announced a virtual education session for the Canadian window industry titled “Cybersecurity for The Manufacturing Industry.”

2020 has been one of the most astounding years in recent human history – destructive in many ways, challenging in others, breathtaking in human resourcefulness. Carefully constructed information systems were “destroyed” rapidly as staff moved from corporate offices to “secure home offices,” creating further avenues for a variety of CyberDisruption from a variety of sources.  We’re becoming used to change as a society and as organization leaders.  However, 2020 brought change with a breathtaking speed that has forced leaders to access the brightest specialists in their field and FenMan offers the Manufacturing Industry access to the very leaders in that field, giving them an opportunity to reduce the risk of a wide range of “cybercrime” . . . through to including massive CyberRansoms. Risks of complete factory shutdowns for days or weeks or for literally millions can devastate your operation or possibly be avoided/managed with the right input/resources.

Event date: October 14, 2020

Time: 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm (CDT)
