Cyber attacks are inevitable. Regardless of the size of your business, if you’re connected to the internet, you are at risk. In its 2018 research, Make UK identified that nearly 50% of manufacturing organisations had been the victim of a cyber attack, making the industry the third most targeted sector.
CORVID invites Heads of IT within the manufacturing industry to join us for breakfast to identify the mistakes which are putting their organisations at risk, and to discuss the best approach to remedy these mistakes.
