Our Forum's agenda has been created in consultation with senior MAPI member executives, and the Forum will be chaired by Roger Hill, who leads cybersecurity R&D for Siemens Industry. Registrants include senior executives from a variety of global manufacturers, including Eaton, John Deere, Babcock & Wilcox, IDEX, Rockwell Automation, Graco, and Dover.
According to Dan Muller, senior vice president & CIO at The Timken Company, "MAPI has provided a very important forum to discuss common IT issues in a confidential and non-threatening environment. So many times we struggle to understand vendor claims, what we read in the trade magazines, etc. But the ability to talk to peer manufacturing companies about emerging IT issues provides an excellent way to assess the reality from the hype."
In Partnership with Siemens
MAPI is proud to partner on this event with Siemens, a leading provider of industrial security services. Click here to browse recent white papers that Siemens has published on the topic.
