Synagex CISO Presents at MassMEP's Manufacturing Your Future i4.0 Event
Pete Morin, CISO at Synagex, helps Massachusetts manufacturers understand the role of IT in manufacturing at MassMEP's networking event.
Friday May 20th was a busy day at Polar Park in Worcester, MA, as area manufacturers gathered for a special event organized by Massachusetts Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MassMEP). MassMEP invited Synagex CISO, Pete Morin, to be part of their panel of speakers for the event, meant to give Massachusetts manufacturers in attendance new insight, knowledge and networking opportunities.
“Cybersecurity awareness right now is very key.” - Pete, CISO
Pete presented on his area of expertise—cybersecurity, and the role of IT in manufacturing. He joined other expert panelists presenting on topics from automation to additive and industry growth strategies.
A team from Synagex was also in attendance at the event, including CEO John Sinopoli, providing cybersecurity and CMMC resources. At Synagex, we like to keep things fun, "Keeping IT Cool", so the team made sure to stock the booth with plenty of fun giveaways and swag.
Synagex has become a go-to cybersecurity resource for MassMEP, participating in podcasts, webinars and special events like "Manufacturing Your Future i4.0" in order to help small manufacturing organizations in Massachusetts understand the importance of IT and cybersecurity. The team has even been dubbed "cybersecurity whisperers" for their ability to explain seemingly complex problems with ease and relatability.
Synagex is also a CMMC RPO—a registered provider organization—providing consulting services for cybersecurity maturity model certification (or CMMC), a requirement amongst many DoD contracts that manufacturing organizations are currently facing. We proudly partner with MassMEP, who can help manufacturers provide the funding for these services and processes, and our goal is to make the process as simple as possible.
