With the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 came a blitz of new and urgent concerns over cybersecurity. Manufacturing’s growing reliance on automation, advanced control systems, and remote work only expands the attack surface for cyber criminals.

MxD’s Hiring Guide addresses a daunting challenge: America must build a new army to protect manufacturers’ intellectual property, factories, and products from cyberattackers that lurk in the shadows, and mutate as readily as any virus.

The Hiring Guide: Cybersecurity in Manufacturing is a playbook for building that urgently needed workforce. It describes 247 job roles; recommends how to train and upskill workers to handle these jobs; and breaks out detailed descriptions for three specific roles crucial to the future of cybersecurity.

The Hiring Guide, developed in partnership with ManpowerGroup, is an indispensable roadmap and must-read for manufacturing executives, HR departments, educators, and policy makers.
