It's a boom time for new investments in U.S. factories in 2023. The goal of those investments is to boost the capacity of the nation’s critical manufacturing infrastructure to produce food, pharmaceuticals, steel, EV batteries and more.

But there’s another key opportunity in those expansion efforts – the ability to embed cybersecurity into a facility construction or modernization project, rather than bolting it on later. Industrial Cybersecurity must be the cornerstone of a successful digital transformation project from the beginning to avoid extra costs and delays.

If you connect it, you need to protect it.

Join us on Sept. 7, 2023, at 12pm Eastern to discover the pros and cons of custom-build versus out-of-the-box MES & network security solutions. And, get five best practices that you can use to embed security into your digital transformation:

  • Implementing Resilient Controls
  • Moving Data to the Cloud
  • Establishing End-to-End Data Visibility
  • Stacking Controls, Tunnels and Certificates
  • Shifting from CapEx to OpEx Spending
