International Rental News (IRN) will host a free webinar on cybersecurity in the rental and construction equipment market featuring senior speakers from rental company Loxam, crane manufacturer Palfinger and used equipment giant Ritchie Bros.

The focus is on cybersecurity for equipment rental, but the discussion will be of equal value to any business in the construction equipment supply chain, from equipment manufacturers and dealers to contractors and rental companies.
