2021 National Cyber Summit
The NCS planning committee has been faced with making difficult decisions as it pertains to the 2021 event. It is our ultimate goal to produce an in-person event. Therefore, we are excited to announce that the Summit will take place on September 28-30, 2021. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 conditions and take necessary action if needed to transition to a hybrid or virtual format.

Securing the Cloud for Manufacturing
Wednesday, June 6, 2018 3:30 p.m. - 4:15 p.m.
Manufacturing has benefited from the move to enterprise cloud platforms and server virtualization for their computing needs. In the rush to increase productivity and lower costs, however, security is often sacrificed. Commercial virtualization software consistently prioritizes speed and ease-of-use ahead of cyber-security, and cloud service vendors offer better security at a steep price. This presentation describes a number of threat scenarios facing cloud-based manufacturing, outlines their specific risks, and introduces technology solutions to protect private clouds against these potential cyber-attacks.
