The Automation Federation and Cerritos College will co-sponsor a free seminar June 6 on the college’s Norwalk, Calif., campus to educate area business and manufacturing leaders on the value and importance of the recently launched U.S. Cybersecurity Framework.

A contributor to the development of the framework, the Automation Federation is helping to organize a series of informational meetings across the U.S. in 2014 to raise awareness around the need to put the framework’s guidelines into action and improve U.S. defenses against industrial cyberattack.

As the umbrella organization of the International Society of Automation, the Automation Federation in 2013 worked with cybersecurity experts at the federal level to incorporate ISA’s internationally recognized industrial automation and control systems security standards within the U.S. Cybersecurity Framework.

The June seminar, called Cybersecurity Framework for Protecting our Nation’s Critical Infrastructure, is also supported by California Manufacturing Technology Consulting.
