TT Electronics and Thales join forces to enable future development of cybersecurity

Enterprise SecurityTop Stories

TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, has announced a collaboration agreement with Thales to enable future development of operational technology (OT) based cybersecurity initiatives and research. These programmes will be delivered out of the National Digital Exploitation Centre (NDEC) in Ebbw Vale, South Wales – a project co-founded by the Welsh Government, Thales and the University of South Wales. The NDEC is a cornerstone of the Welsh Government’s Tech Valleys initiative, which offers cyberskills and knowledge to South Wales.

This collaboration brings together Thales’ expertise in securing critical systems with TT Electronics’ innovative approach to electronics manufacturing for high-reliability markets. The partnership will allow the companies to work hand-in-hand on developing a complete cybersecurity journey, from operational technology asset discovery within TT Electronics’ factories, to the implementation of a Security Operations Centre (SOC) and development of future products for TT. 

“Thales and TT Electronics have very complementary and synergistic technologies,” said Perry Duffill, VP/GM, TT Electronics Global Manufacturing Solutions. “This collaboration enables TT to provide an additional level of security assurance for our aerospace and defence, medical and industrial customers who rely on us to manufacture highly complex systems for mission-critical applications. We are true business partners, and by leveraging our joint strengths, we are providing significant opportunities for our country, our industry, the community, our employees and our partners.”
