Episode #63- Stay ahead of Cybercriminals . . . or Else

Guest: Donna Ritson, President, DDR Communications

As the manufacturing industry continues to adopt more significant levels of technology and connectivity, a robust cybersecurity strategy is essential. Donna Ritson, president of DDR Communications, discusses PMMI Business Intelligence’s report 2021 Cybersecurity: Assess Your Risk, revealing that the recent rise in remote working further compounds these vulnerabilities and leaves the manufacturing industry at greater risk of devastating cybersecurity attacks.
