STEPS FOR PROTECTION: Virtual Cybersecurity Day with John Wood Community College

October 13, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm

ACCESS THE RECORDING: Cybersecurity Gaps in Manufacturing
ACCESS THE RECORDING: Increase Employee and Personal Cybersecurity Awareness

YOUR NEXT STEP: 1-on-1 Meeting

  • Conversation directly with Winsor Consulting to ask your questions based on the Cyber Gaps questionnaire, or general cybersecurity protections
  • To schedule a meeting: Contact Emily Lee  at elee@imec.org


While individual companies are at different points in their cybersecurity journey, there is consistency in the gaps they must address.  IMEC and JWCC welcome Winsor Consulting to share the common security areas that most manufacturing facilities are lacking, discovered through gap analyses at 30 manufacturers right here in Illinois. Learn how you can turn this awareness into action for your company.

Did you know that 95% of cybersecurity breaches are caused by human error?  Your company is responsible for educating employees to identify and appropriately respond to attempted breaches – but many companies lack security policies and training to do just that.  Cybersecurity Day will inform your team on best practices for maintaining physical and cyber security at work.

With the increase of personal data on digital devices – phones, tablets, computers – personal cybersecurity awareness is a continued necessity. Cybersecurity Day will educate on protecting yourself and reducing the risk of a breach.


Session 1: Cybersecurity Gaps in Manufacturing
9:30 AM – 10:45 AM

Hear top cybersecurity gaps as discovered at Illinois manufacturers, and how to improve protections at your company to become more secure.

Session 2: Increase Employee and Personal Cybersecurity Awareness
1:00 PM –  2:00 PM
