Cybersecurity Update: Applying the NIST Cybersecurity Framework
In our February Section Meeting we discussed the NIST framework and current technology solutions to specifically apply the framework for Industrial Control Systems (ICS).
About our Topic:
US national security depends on the reliability and continuous operations of the nation’s critical infrastructure. The increasing complexity and connectivity of critical infrastructure systems exposes them to cybersecurity threats which put their safety and reliability at risk.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Framework was created through collaboration between the government and the private sector in response to the Executive Order (EO) 13636: Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, which called for the development of a risk-based Cybersecurity Framework. It provides a set of industry standards and best practices to help organizations manage and reduce cybersecurity risk to critical infrastructures.
The Framework enables organizations – regardless of size, degree of cybersecurity risk, or cybersecurity sophistication – to take action by applying the principles and best practices of risk management to improve the security and resilience of critical infrastructure.
