ARM Exchange Public Webinar: Cyber Security for Robotics and the Impact on Workforce

The Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Institute is the leading national consortium for robotics, artificial intelligence, autonomy, and security.  This webinar will focus on the issues relative to preparing the manufacturing workforce to deal with cybersecurity issues and to help you better understand the issues, competencies and training needed to protect the robotic assets and your workforce. Our panel will focus on the following:

  • what robotic technicians need to know to protect robots from cyber-attacks at the edge (machine level and related to the interface between the machines and the network)
  • what competencies are needed for the robotic technicians to upskill to address cyber challenges
  • need for training on how to protect robots from cyber attacks
  • key cyber training programs for robotic technicians to acquire these competencies
