Average Cost of a Cyber Attack to Manufacturers

Manex has partnered with Cytellix, the Cybersecurity Division of Information Management Resources, Inc., to provide an affordable managed cybersecurity service to small manufacturing companies.

Why Now?

The statistics show the small and mid-size business market has not been able to track the constant system upgrades, moves and changes. 60% of these businesses will experience losses from cyber incidents significant enough to drive them out of business within six months. Limited budgets and cyber resources in IT have prevented business owners from protecting their infrastructure. The awareness of the devices, or internet of things (IOT), on networks is almost nonexistent. New requirements for cybersecurity compliance and policies have rolled out to many industries, and there are more to come.

The U.S. Department of Commerce under the National Institute of Standards and Technology issued a mandate, SP 800-171 (DFARS 252.204.7012) outlining the cybersecurity compliance requirements for all supply chain contractors. To continue business with the government, all supply chain contractors must be in full compliance with 14 cybersecurity controls by December 31, 2017.

In addition to implementing these security controls, contractors must also provide documentation of a completed Cybersecurity Evaluation Tool (CSET) test, a plan for improvement and evidence of continuous network monitoring to their prime contractors to retain contracts.
