How has Cybersecurity Training helped other manufacturers?

How CTM Moved Beyond a Cyberattack

CTM Corporation of Frankfort, NY provides precision machining and fabrication services to military, aerospace, and commercial customers. When this Mohawk Valley manufacturer was hit with a cyberattack, CTM turned to the Advanced Institute for Manufacturing (AIM) for help.

Paul LaPorte, AIM’s Cyber Security coordinator, worked closely with CTM to remove a computer virus and malware. “The process of remediation is not difficult”, Steven Naegle says. Neither is the process of working with AIM to perform a cyber assessment, a structured analysis that identifies vulnerabilities.


How Falvo Uses Cybersecurity to Edge Out the Competition

Falvo Manufacturing believes having enhanced cybersecurity standards give them an edge over their competitors in the defense supply chain.

Unlike some other manufacturers, this maker of wooden packaging meets the requirements of NIST SP 800-171 thanks to a 2019 cybersecurity grant from the New York Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NYMEP).  

“I don’t know how to do all of this stuff,” says Gene Falvo, owner of Falvo Manufacturing, “the folks at AIM and FuzeHub and MVCC, they do. Let them come in and do what they do and help you make your business better.”
