DM webinar looks at threats to supply chain security

Recent cyber attacks, such as SolarWinds, highlight the vulnerability of industrial supply chains. Given the high visibility of these attacks, it’s not surprising that a four-part webinar series on cybersecurity challenges in 3D manufacturing would include a look at how to deal with this issue. The July 1 event featured Dr. Satish Bukkapatnam of Texas A&M University, Rachel Xu of Johnson & Johnson, and Mario Mercado of BATS-TOI and was moderated by Hammond Pearce. NYU Center for Cybersecurity and the National Science Foundation were sponsors.
