Nation’s Digital Manufacturing and Cybersecurity Institute Launches the MxD Cyber Resource Hub 

Resource Hub to Serve as One-Stop Shop for Cyber Tools, Assets, and Information

October 5, 2022 (CHICAGO) — MxD, the nation’s digital manufacturing and cybersecurity institute, today announced that it has launched the MxD Cyber Resource Hub

The MxD Cyber Resource Hub serves as a clearinghouse for MxD’s entire suite of cybersecurity tools and content. Resources exclusive to MxD include the MxD Cyber Marketplace and CMMC 2.0 Playbook, to increase the cyber preparedness and compliance of U.S. manufacturers. Additional resources include podcasts, webinars, videos, and articles focused on cybersecurity – from the Top Cybersecurity Threats series to What’s New in CMMC? 

“The manufacturing sector is now the most-targeted sector for cybersecurity attacks,” said Berardino Baratta, MxD CEO. “Manufacturers represented almost 25 percent of all cyber-attacks in 2021. The MxD Cyber Resource Hub provides a space where manufacturers can begin their cyber journey, educate themselves on potential threats, and increase their cyber resilience.” 

Risks of a cyber-attack are expected to double by 2025 and the manufacturing industry faces unprecedented complexity as business owners seek to secure operations. Of the nation’s 250,000 manufacturers, 75% have fewer than 20 employees and lack the specialized workforce to prioritize minimizing risks of cyber-attacks. Often an attack can go undetected for months due to a lack of cyber awareness.  

As the National Center for Cybersecurity in Manufacturing, MxD is charged with elevating the cyber readiness of all U.S. manufacturers. MxD is committed to being a resource for manufacturers on their cyber journey by providing up to date information and tools to assist in ongoing cybersecurity development. The MxD Cyber Resource Hub will be continually updated and expanded to support these goals.
