The National Additive Manufacturing Innovative Institute (NAMII) in Youngstown, Ohio was mentioned recently by President Barack Obama in his State of the Union address, calling it the hub of the nation's "catch-up" efforts to get back into the manufacturing game.  NAMII is the first of 15 "innovative institutes" to be established by President Obama's $1-billion National Network for Manufacturing Innovation strategy he introduced in March 2012.

NAMII’s goal is to take 3-D printing, and other methods for translating digital images into parts, from a niche prototyping technology to a full-fledged production manufacturing technology.  3-D printing relies on a CAD-based digital thread sent over a network to a 3-D printer.  As 3-D printing proliferates, the fledgling industry must identify and defend against a variety of cyber challenges, just like any other digital technology.  

Our event on May 14th will first provide a primer on additive manufacturing for the cyber professional, and then allow for a frank two-way discussion of the actual and perceived cyber challenges and potential solutions.  The event will stimulate new ideas on how to implement cyber security solutions now to effectively protect the digital thread, so as not to compromise the backbone of additive manufacturing.
