How secure is your industrial network? Do you have shared passwords? While working on OT related networks, can you access the internet and your email?

If you have been following the news and happen to work in a process or manufacturing facility, you are probably thinking about how secure your environment is, and if it is at risk for critical production halting threats.  Whether your company manufactures cars, packages food products, or provides an essential resource or goods to society, an attack could be crippling to not only your business but the population who may very well rely on the goods that you produce. The implications of a network breach could not only include huge monetary losses resulting from downtime and halted production, but the negative impact on your brand and reputation could be staggering and, in some cases, unrepairable.

While 95% of cyber attacks are caused by human error, for example, a clicked link or an email that made it through the walls with an attachment targeting vulnerable applications, the question to ask yourself is, “why did a human mistake allow a breach to critical operational technology?”

JMP works closely with customers to assess network and OT related infrastructures and has extensive experience in collaboratively developing roadmaps which prioritize actions and define an ideal future state in order to successfully segregate critical production environments from these threats.  Not only can we assess, but we can provide detailed designs and full implementation to ensure that your company is aligned with security standards and reference architectures that will deliver peace of mind through a fully secured and protected network. Even if you think your network is secure, we can test it to discover vulnerabilities that you didn’t even know you had.

An increasing number of attacks are becoming targeted at specific businesses. Even the companies that have a plan and a strategy can make mistakes, miss critical issues, and in some cases have trouble raising or effectively qualifying the capital to put allocate towards the security solutions required.  The JMP Networking and Security team acts as a partner to not only identify and implement solutions but work collaboratively and seamlessly with company IT and executives to define and clearly illustrate the business case and need for certain technologies and designs as well as the potential impact of their absence.  Our goal is to help companies proactively secure their entire OT infrastructure and prevent the breaches we’re seeing in the news today all too often.

UCEC Identifies What Makes Them a Top Notch Control Panel Builder

PBUS-27-UCEC-TopNotchPanelBuilder-400.jpg

UCEC has existed for more than sixty years by building the best control panels, period. To keep their focus on quality custom panels, they have never defined themselves as a “one-stop shop." To be all things to all people with something as complicated as a control panel should send up a red flag. When panels shops try to do everything (a “one-stop shop”), that’s when things get diluted and messy.

There is so much talent and work that goes into a UCEC panel. UCEC knows their industry thoroughly, and they wish to remain highly relevant in the field. No one gets there by being all things to all people. UCEC shares two examples of this philosophy in action.

PARTNERING WITH EXPERTS TO SERVE CLIENTS BETTER

UCEC's talented craftsmen contribute their years of knowledge of panel building to each project. Conversely, most engineering firms who try to build panels quickly learn there is more to them than meets the eye. As UCEC's President and CEO, Mark Inboden said, “Two specialized companies collaborating to solve a customer’s problem often leads to a better result for the end user.”

UCEC finds that the best results happen for their clients when they partner with other experts and this case study demonstrates exactly that.
