Cybersecurity for the Manufacturing & Distribution (M&D) Industry: Balancing Your IT Risk Investment

Did you know that manufacturing was the second-most targeted industry for cyber attacks in 2015, according to IBM? As a result, cyber risk is moving up on manufacturers’ list of priorities. More than nine in ten manufacturers (92 percent) cite cybersecurity concerns this year, up 44 percent from 2013.

BDO Columbus invites you and your colleagues to our M&D Industry Roundtable on Thursday, February 9.  CFOs, CIOs, Internal Audit Directors and Risk Officers will gain valuable insights from their industry peers and walk away with action items to deploy from a panel of experts in cybersecurity and IT risk.   

We will discuss areas unique to the manufacturing & distribution industry that need to be considered in an inclusive framework, enabling you to have effective communications with a wide range of stakeholders, from investors to Board members and even key clients about how you plan to mitigate this unavoidable risk while still keeping the budget and bottom line in mind.  
11:30 AM to 12:00 PM - Registration and Networking
12:00 PM to 1:00  PM - Presentation

The meeting will be held in the Monroe Room and a complimentary lunch will be provided.
