CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — These days it’s almost impossible to do anything without a computer.
Now, you may not realize how vulnerable your tech is to hackers and other criminals.
But a cybersecurity seminar called the Smart Factories Expo in Cleveland on Thursday aimed to help consumers and businesses recognize these problems so you don’t become a victim.
It featured several experts including a cybersecurity advisor at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Cyber attacks on manufacturing facilities rose by 107% in 2022, making up more than 70% of all industrial cyber incidents.
‘Every time we’re connecting more, that is opening up more portals for cyber-criminals to be able to get in and exploit our vulnerability,’ said Denise Hall, CEO of Peak Performance.
There will be another such seminar on August 10th. Go here to learn more.
