New U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rules went into effect in December that require public companies, including manufacturers, to disclose which—if any—policies and procedures they have put in place to manage cybersecurity threats. SEC Rule 17 also requires companies to disclose “material” cyber breaches within four business days, as the world saw with last year’s Clorox cyberattack, which that company says will cost hundreds of millions. During this Smart Industry webinar, we will look at the newly expanded SEC rules and what they require of manufacturing IT and OT and their CISOs and other implementation personnel.
