GRIMM and Ampere Form Alliances and Pledge to Secure Critical Infrastructure

CEDAR RAPIDS, MI – February 1, 2023 – GRIMM, a forward-looking cybersecurity organization led by industry experts, and Ampere, a security consulting firm specializing in industrial control systems (ICS), are proud to announce an alliance to secure critical infrastructure around the globe.

With the increased convergence of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT), the security of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) for the Energy sector, Advanced Manufacturing, and Transportation infrastructure has never been more critical. Together, GRIMM and Ampere marry their security expertise and provide a holistic approach to solving and securing the most challenging cybersecurity threats for IT and OT environments.

“By forming an alliance between Ampere and GRIMM, we are able to leverage Ampere’s deep industry and regulatory knowledge with GRIMM’s Penetration Testing, Threat Modeling and Vulnerability Assessment expertise to help protect our critical infrastructure clients,” said GRIMM SVP Tom VanNorman.

Security for IT and OT networks is complex, with many variables unique to each organization. Threats ranging from network to physical security coupled with human error from a lack of training or awareness often place our critical infrastructure at risk. Bundling turnkey solutions from GRIMM and Ampere, comprising security assessments, consulting, and penetration testing, provide unique resources to train the current and next-generation workforce.
