Please join us on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016 for the second public forum organized by the NDIA Cybersecurity for Advanced Manufacturing Joint Working Group! 

The NDIA Cybersecurity for Advanced Manufacturing (CFAM) Joint Working Group (JWG) was launched in November 2015 as a government and industry collaboration to identify cybersecurity threats, vulnerabilities, and consequences in defense contractors’ manufacturing networks and to define actions to mitigate those risks.  Our first public forum, held in August, raised awareness to the manufacturing networks’ cyber threats facing our defense industrial base and introduced the CFAM JWG to a broader community.

We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker:

Nina Vajda, Executive Director and Practice Leader ICS & SCADA Cybersecurity, Nisos Group. Ms. Vajda has more than 25 years’ experience assessing Cybersecurity risks associated with Industrial Control and SCADA systems in the defense industrial base as well as in other industries.

The CFAM JWG team leaders will present their findings and recommendations to improve cybersecurity in the defense industrial base’s manufacturing networks. Following each team leader’s presentation, subject matter experts from government and industry will moderate an open discussion to add real-world perspective to the teams’ plans.

Open discussion time will be built into the agenda to allow contributions from forum attendees.
