In today’s manufacturing environment, many of the tools and applications needed for keeping control systems operational require dedicated workstations per device. In these cases, each workstation requires specialized configurations where updates and adjustments demand strategic planning and standards to prevent any unnecessary downtime. Through our TechSentry Managed Services, our experienced team uses these standards to reduce your risk of unscheduled downtime through scheduled updates and patches, 24/7 monitoring, proactive testing, and quarterly planning with your assigned vCIO.
While there are several NIST standards, NIST 800-171 satisfies the security requirements of the manufacturing sector and is AT-NET’s minimum cyber security standard. The purpose of NIST 800-171 is to be a “security check-list” for federal agencies with regards to their interactions with nonfederal systems and organizations for “Controlled Unclassified Information.” Manufacturers and their supply chain continue to be a high priority target for ransomware and other cyber attacks which makes keeping standards like NIST 800-171 all the more important. The AT-NET team is more than prepared to help manufacturers in creating a secure and detailed security plan including evaluation of current infrastructure, design of any new systems, continual monitoring of technologies, and ongoing training of employees.
