information technology for Manufacturing
While the internet of things (IoT), robotics, and automation aren’t new to manufacturing, they are constantly evolving. These create new challenges for IT for manufacturing, and there’s very little room for error. Peters & Associates can help with top IT challenges, including:
Manufacturers are targets for bad actors. They may be seeking proprietary information or want to cause chaos. Cybersecurity is critical to keeping your operation running and your employees safe. Peters & Associates uses a customer-first, multi-layered approach to security, and our staff maintains leading information security credentials, including CISM, CISSP and SECURITY+.
Power BI integrates with other tools, including Microsoft Excel, so you can get up to speed quickly and work seamlessly with your existing solutions. You can also build powerful end-to-end business solutions by connecting Power BI across the entire Microsoft Power Platform, including Office 365 and Azure, to provide actionable insights that drive business results and innovation across your entire organization.
Manufacturing firms doing business with the Department of Defense (DoD) are required to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) is the regulation and the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is the framework developed to make sure federal contractors are compliant with the required cybersecurity practices.
Your infrastructure is the backbone of your operation. You need fast, reliable wired and wireless access. Any unplanned downtime has the potential to be catastrophic. Peters & Associates can assess your current infrastructure and work with you to bring it up-to-date and ready for whatever the future brings.

CMMC audit preparation
CMMC is a standard for cybersecurity implementation within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) that protects Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).
DFARS is an amendment to a series of rules that regulate the DoD and other government agencies’ purchasing of goods and services.
Contractors with the Department of Defense (DoD) must meet DFARS and CMMC standards.
