Chris Meacham, Virtual CIO for Manufacturing Companies in CT

Leverage Our Virtual CIO

What do we mean by a Virtual Chief Information Officer? Well, your manufacturing company juggles multiple business issues every day. Moreover, many things that slow you down can be addressed with creative technology solutions. Chris is that creative, tech-driven, business consultant and project manager. He will review your processes and help you put protocols (and sometimes new technology) in place – to resolve your most pressing issues. 

Our manufacturing clients call on Chris in the following instances:

  • We want to expand our market share or product line with the most efficient use of current or new talent and resources 
  • Our team can’t fulfill orders quickly because of errors in communication or other technology issues on the shop floor
  • We can’t find skilled labor or turnover is high
  • Our team does not have the training to implement new technology
  • We have an ERP or we’re looking to purchase a new one, but not sure we’re making the right decision or using the current one to best advantage
  • We can’t keep up with our customers’ growing demands to have an “Amazon experience” 
  • We’re concerned about compliance and security threats

Get Cutting-Edge Cybersecurity

Unfortunately, cybercriminals stand to make too much profit by targeting your manufacturing company to be deterred. A direct cost benefit analysis tells them that you have valuable, proprietary information that they can ransom or post online. 

Moreover, growing threats result in increasing compliance requirements. These requirements mean that a breach will likely shut down your manufacturing operation for too long. That’s why we treat your cybersecurity a top initiative.  

Chris advises manufacturing clients on the following standard and high-level security compliance measures:

  • Multi-Factor-Authentication (best practices and ease of use)
  • Anti-virus software
  • Patching 
  • Email spam filters and policies 
  • Ransomware protection
  • Zero-trust policies
