Association Offers Members High-Value, No-Cost Cyber Resource

Members of Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association now have access to an online service to protect against cyber attacks.

The Association has partnered with Enquiron to provide the Shortline Cyber Resource Center at no charge to members. This resource provides easy access to information, training and tools to help companies prevent a cyber attack and respond effectively if they fall victim. 

The new Shortline Cyber Resource Center includes: 

Cyber Assessment: A 15-question assessment to gauge exposure. When you complete it, the web platform customizes recommendations for next steps.

Baseline Phishing Campaign: Assess your company’s vulnerability by launching a phishing campaign. This will help you assess employees’ awarenesss around cyber risks.

Cyber Resources: The center includes training modules as well as articles, videos, best practice guides, and more. Choose from a list of 18 topics, including incident detection and response, malware, ransomware, safe computing, and disaster recovery.

Policy and Procedure Templates: Find an incident response template and policies on remote access, workstation security, risk assessment, server malware protection, and more.

Webinars: Among the seven webinars on the platform this week are topics such as breach reporting, auditing your website, and ransomware.

Getting Started: Watch for an activation email from Enquiron (please add and to your safe-sender list). Follow instructions after clicking on the link to create a password for immediate access. You also can search your email for the term “Shortline Cyber Resource Center.”

If you have not received the email, access the login screen at Click on the “forgot password,” link, and follow the prompts to reset your password.

Once you’ve gained access you can also invite others from your organization. From the landing page, scroll down the left banner and click on the “Invite a Colleague” link to quickly add other users to the service.

“The Association’s Risk Management Committee has been exploring the possibility of offering members a cyber security resource for years,” said Executive Vice President Vernon Schmidt. “This three-year partnership with Enquiron brings a value to members far higher than their annual membership dues. I hope every company seizes the opportunity.”

Sentry Insurance provides this same resource to policyholders. Association members who are Sentry customers will continue to access the resource through Sentry rather than the Association.
