Thinking Beyond Compliance: Data Asset Security for Your Business

By Waleed Haddad and Jennifer Hudgins | Access-Interactive | 1/24/2018

Just because you are compliant does not mean you are secure. This critical message is not just for the Information Security community, but for all players in the larger business community.

In case you missed it, Automation Alley Executive Director and CEO Tom Kelly had some very interesting and thought-provoking conversations about the future of technology and manufacturing on Automation Alley's podcast, Factory Reboot, this year. The podcast, which is focused on technology’s role in manufacturing and the Industry 4.0 transformation, featured gusts from the robotics, virtual reality, IIoT and cybersecurity fields, and explored the opportunities and challenges manufacturers face as they rethink, retool and rebuild the way they do business in the smart and connected world.
