What is it?

The Fourth Industrial Revolution (I4.0 or Industry 4.0) is transforming traditional business processes through modern technology. While this evolution impacts all industries, it is especially critical in manufacturing, where companies must learn to adapt or be left behind. Through careful assessment, planning and implementation, manufacturers can realize improved efficiency, profitability and most importantly, sustainability. 


Join us as we explore these topics, in partnership with Velocity, for a series of workshops featuring a panel of industry experts and peer adopters. 

Who should attend?

The workshops are open to all businesses who are ready to explore how the digital revolution can transform the way business gets done (manufacturing, health care, logistics, retail, IT & tech, start-ups, etc.).

Workshop #5 - October 19

Increased connectivity and communications mean an increase in outside threats. 

Businesses must carefully consider the security implications to have a successful Industry 4.0 journey, since protecting against threats is a full-time job. 

Cybersecurity is the focus of our fifth and final Industry 4.0 workshop of the year. The workshop will take place Thursday, Oct. 19, from 8 a.m.-10 a.m. at the Velocity Center in Sterling Heights.

Learn how to stay protected and benefit from the implementation of the pillars of Industry 4.0 by learning how to safeguard the measures you’ve put into place. Our cybersecurity workshop will teach you how to identify and manage security risks, protect your assets, detect potential threats before they occur, and the proper ways to respond to an incident.

The keynote speaker  is Michelle M. Matte, an Information Systems Security Engineer at U.S. Army CCDC Ground Vehicle Systems Center. The panelists include Jeff Smith from Dynics and Raj Patel from SensCy.

The workshop is hosted by the Macomb County Department of Planning and Economic Development (MCPED) in partnership with the Velocity Center.

​A light breakfast will be served with ample time for networking and visiting with exhibitors that offer related products and services.

There is no cost to attend the workshop, but seating is limited and pre-registration is required.

The Velocity Center is located at 6633 18 Mile Road in Sterling Heights.
