EVENT: Cyber Security for manufacturing businesses as part of CyberFest North East

Advance Northumberland, is supporting Northumberland’s largest Cyberfest Manufacturing event, as part of the wider #CyberFest North East programme.

This key sector in Northumberland is evolving – with Industry 4.0 and adoption of automation and digitalisation in advance manufacturing, our county’s businesses need to be aware of the opportunities this adoption can have on their operations and explore what this means in regards to cyber technology and protection.
