While manufacturers encounter typical business vulnerabilities such as stolen intellectual property, they also face unique threats because of increasingly connected manufacturing floors. While these threats are ever present, the CyMOT program comes at a crucial time. The COVID-19 pandemic increased remote work and remote manufacturing operations, which can make businesses more vulnerable to attack. As a result, job openings in manufacturing cybersecurity, which were growing prior to the pandemic, are expected to increase even more rapidly.
The CyMOT curriculum draws heavily from the job role skills and abilities within MxD’s Hiring Guide: Cybersecurity in Manufacturing. The Hiring Guide is a playbook that describes 247 cybersecurity for manufacturing job roles, recommends how to train and upskill workers to handle these jobs, and breaks out detailed descriptions for six specific roles crucial to the future of cybersecurity.
