    The last decade has seen a widening gap between how traditional, IT-oriented patch management works and how it needs to be approached in manufacturing environments. If you’re still on the fence about the importance of cybersecurity in manufacturing, consider these recent statistics: In 2015, 46 percent of cybersecurity victims were in the manufacturing industry, with the technology industry being hit second hardest at 19 percent. The average dwell time from infection to detection in manufacturing is 314 days. Response time from detection to eviction is, on average, 28 days. Given this reality, end users should not underestimate their vulnerability when it comes to patch management and system and information integrity. Keeping up with patches can be overwhelming, but implementing a successful patch management solution can prevent attacks and help maintain normal operations. A common challenge at industrial network sites is not being able to test patches before deploying them to the production environment. Too often, production environments do not have downtime windows to reboot a server or workstation to apply a patch. Many of these environments are also managed by non-technical service technicians focused on the electrical and mechanical needs of the facility. These technicians often lack the knowledge and expertise of what issues a patch might create as well as how to back out of an installation. The benefits to end users from using the services of personnel trained in industrial IT to properly test and apply vendor-approved patches include: fewer issues with compatibility and access to expertise in the software and communication needs of the systems to properly test, deploy, and validate the patch service. In corporate IT, most systems are similar and/or cloned to be the same. This makes it easy and predictable to deploy basic patches through normal IT services. As a result, there is usually no testing done and all systems get all patches. In the industrial IT space, however, sites may have many different software packages as well as numerous versions of the same package. This can require a patch solution to not only recognize the vendor brand but also the version it is running. Look for a patch management solution that covers both of these scenarios. An effective solution should check the vendor and version to reference an approved patch baseline from the system to present and apply when the operator has a downtime opportunity. This also allows integrators to look at compliance of applied patches based off the approved patches from these vendors.

Testimonials
There were a lot of things that went well on this project. Interstates’ organizational procedures helped keep the electrical portion of the job on track. These were especially helpful during start-up to ensure equipment and devices were checked out before operating.
Senior Project Manager A National General Contractor
I want to compliment the professionalism and strong commitment that the Interstates team had to the project's overall success. Most importantly, the safety culture and principles ingrained at Interstates were very apparent on and off the job site and resulted in no reportable injuries for the Interstates team. The project management, organization, communications and documentation all exceeded expectations.
Project Build Manager Biodiesel Division
Overall, the project was very successful, especially taking into account the complexity of custom process equipment controls on top of state-of-the-art building infrastructure. The many things that went well were due to the people involved.
Director of Engineering National Pet Food Company
