We work with local Wichita Businesses to provide services that fit within their budgets and help them meet
their short, medium, and long-term business goals. We provide services that make processes increasingly efficient by identifying areas where machines can do repetitive work in place of humans, allowing the human components in manufacturing to produce more products in the same amount of time.
We can partner that with cybersecurity risk management to ensure the customer is:
1. Meeting applicable industry standards, laws, and regulations
2. Doing its due diligence to protect its people, processes, and often the end consumer
3. At a heightened security posture
4. Able to more quickly recover from a cyber-incident
All while “baking in” the security as we streamline and upgrade their processes.
George Coffman Electric – Cyber has the tools, people, and knowledge to protect your assets as a business owner at a price point that closely resembles Kansas value because we live, work, and do business right in Wichita, Kansas. We are here to make sure customers' operations and bottom line survive a cyber-attack.
While no cyber company can guarantee 100% safety, GCE can give you value and increase your posture in a package that fits the Wichita Manufacturer's budget. While no cyber company can guarantee 100% safety, GCE can give you value and increase your posture in a package that fits the Wichita Manufacturer's budget.
At GCE–Cyber we have multiple areas we like to work with businesses to improve on. We can show customers what the consequences are of a cyber-attack can be, what the current threat environment of their organization is, the estimated cost to recover from an attack is, and the costs of various cybersecurity products and services are. It's the belief at GCE that the cyber insurance market is not maturing proportionately to the cyber risk landscape that when that industry catches up, there will be significant insurance incentives associated with cost savings that will significantly drive demand for our services. A successful ransomware attack on a typical IT system takes on average 16 days to recover from, a number that is increasing yearly. While limited data is available on ransomware attacks targeting OT systems, the complexity of many of these systems makes it reasonable to estimate a longer time frame for a full recovery. With manufacturing companies watching the bottom line so closely to remain competitive in the world market, three weeks of limited or no manufacturing would be devastating to almost any business. GCE follows the current National Institute of Standards and Technology NIST SP-800-82 guidelines to implement cybersecurity controls in the OT environment.
