NCCoE Learning Series: Security Segmentation for Small Manufacturers


As manufacturers are increasingly targeted in cyberattacks, any gaps in cybersecurity leave small manufacturers vulnerable to attacks. Small manufacturers tend to operate facilities with limited staff and resources, often causing cybersecurity to fall by the wayside as something that costs too much time and money. Additionally, bringing together various cybersecurity standards, frameworks, and guides to derive a coherent action plan is a challenge even for those experienced in cybersecurity. Security segmentation is a cost effective and efficient security design approach for protecting cyber assets by grouping them based on their communication and security requirements.

Join us on June 28, 2023 from 2:00-2:45 p.m. ET where we will discuss the NCCoE’s most recent manufacturing publication, NIST Cybersecurity White Paper: Security Segmentation in a Small Manufacturing Environment. The paper outlines a practical six-step approach, incorporating the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) and NIST IR 8183 Cybersecurity Framework Manufacturing Profile (“CSF Manufacturing Profile”), that manufacturers can follow to implement security segmentation and mitigate cyber vulnerabilities in their manufacturing environments.

Join us on June 28 for a discussion where you’ll:

  • meet the publication authors
  • receive an overview of the new white paper with key takeaways
  • have the opportunity to ask the publication authors questions
  • learn how to stay involved in the NCCoE’s manufacturing-related efforts
