New Jersey’s Advanced Manufacturing Talent Network (AMTN) builds partnerships in the manufacturing industry to develop and support advanced manufacturing in the Garden State and formulate strategies for competing at the regional, national, and global levels.


The AMTN, led by the New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program (NJMEP), connects with businesses, educational institutions, workforce organizations, training groups, and community- and faith-based organizations to gather ground-level intelligence on the industry to make informed decisions on high-quality public workforce investments and expand the number of New Jersey residents with industry-valued credentials or degrees.

Event description: Hackers are now able to effectively penetrate the information systems of small to mid-sized businesses with the intent of holding these companies for ransom. Manufacturers have become increasingly popular targets over the past couple of years as hackers gain access to intellectual property, physical manufacturing processes and other proprietary business elements.

Please join Michael Brands, Director of Information Security Services for LinkHigh Technologies Inc., in an engaging discussion on Cybersecurity. Real life examples of New Jersey manufacturing companies that have been victimized by hackers, the costs associated with recovery from a cyber-attack, and practical steps manufacturers can take to begin mitigating these threats will be presented.
