NCCoE Releases Final Project Description: Responding to and Recovering from a Cyber Attack: Cybersecurity for the Manufacturing Sector


The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has released the final project description, Responding to and Recovering from a Cyber Attack: Cybersecurity for the Manufacturing Sector. The publication of this project description continues the process to further identify project requirements and scope, along with hardware and software components for use in a laboratory environment.

What is this project about?

Industrial control systems (ICS) and devices that run manufacturing environments play a critical role in the supply chain. Manufacturing organizations rely on ICS to monitor and control physical processes that produce goods for public consumption. These same systems are facing an increasing number of cyber attacks, presenting a threat to safety, production, and economic impact to a manufacturing organization. The goal of this NCCoE project is to demonstrate a means to recover equipment from cyber attacks and restore operations.

Next Steps

In the coming weeks, the NCCoE Manufacturing team will be publishing a Federal Register Notice (FRN) based on the final project description. If you have interest in participating in this project with us as a collaborator, you will have the opportunity to complete a Letter of Interest (LOI) where you can present your capabilities. Completed LOIs are considered on a first-come, first-served basis within each category of components or characteristics listed in the FRN, up to the number of participants in each category necessary to carry out the project build.
