NOCO: Lunch & Learn – Cyber Attack Counterattack
Date: February 20, 2020
Time: 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
Address: 815 14th Street Southwest, Bldg D190, Loveland, Co 80537
Many technology departments and managed service providers believe the answer to protecting manufacturers from cyberattacks is to pour money at the problem with newer and better software, training and systems. But is this the best approach for your company?
In this 90-minute working lunch session, we’ll explain why you as a manufacturer should stop or reduce spending on many of these tools. Some of these investments may, in fact, be reducing your company’s productivity and functionality.
Our panel members will share some revolutionary ideas that should dramatically change how you work with your IT team to protect your manufacturing company assets and operations from cyberattacks. And yes, with less cost!
We encourage all manufacturing company owners to attend this session and hear this information first-hand. We recommend they bring along their senior internal or external IT leader as well.
Ben Allen, Principal of Allen CIO, has put together a remarkable panel of leading manufacturing-focused cyber security experts for this discussion.
- Moderator: Ben Allen founded Allen CIO in 2019 to provide IT oversight and technology strategic guidance for mid-sized manufacturing companies in Colorado’s Front Range. Prior to that, he founded Allen Technology Advising and ran the firm for more than 20 years before selling the company.
- Christopher Sundberg is with Woodward Inc., a Colorado-based independent designer, manufacturer, and service provider of control solutions for the aerospace and industrial markets. He’s been with the company for more than 11 years and currently serves as a Global Cyber Security Engineer.
- Jennifer Kurtz is the Cyber Security Program Director at Manufacturer’s Edge, helping mid-sized manufacturers navigate NIST 800-171 compliance matters, identify security gaps and establish remedial plans of action.
- Yon Lew is COO of ISREC International, Ltd. and the CISO/CSO/Managing Director of ISREC North America, which provides cybersecurity services for defense-contracting companies such as Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Northrup Grumman.
Their stories will be good. And the best practices they’ll share to protect yourself in this decade will be even better!
Please note, this is our first NoCo Mfg Lunch and Learn where you can attend in person or virtually through an interactive live podcast. Please note that the cost of the virtual version is slightly higher to accommodate the professional assistance we will use for this inaugural podcast.

Northern Colorado Manufacturing Partnership is pleased to host the largest manufacturing trade show in the state showcasing Colorado’s expanding manufacturing sector, connecting suppliers, manufacturers, and public partners. With 125 booths featured in 2019 and over 900 attendees, the 2020 show is expected to offer more business opportunities than you will find anywhere else! Attendees of the show include business owners, presidents, CEOs, sales and business development managers, sales representatives, buyers, marketing coordinators, students, educators and more. Over 70% of exhibitors gained business from exhibiting NOCOM in previous years.
Our theme 2020, “What is Manufacturing? It’s more than we think!” will challenge us all to think outside of the typical understanding of manufacturing. Did you know manufacturing is the mechanical, physical or chemical transformation of materials or substances into new products including assembling of component parts, blending of materials or liquids? Did you know products could be finished or semi-finished for further manufacturing? Join us at NOCOM to share what you manufacture and what it means to you!
