The NCCoE Announces Technology Collaborators for Protecting Information and System Integrity in Industrial Control System Environments Project

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has invited ten technology providers and industry experts to collaborate on the Protecting Information and System Integrity in Industrial Control System Environments Project.

The collaborators are CyberX, Dispel, Dragos, GreenTec USA, ForeScout Technologies, OSIsoft, RadiflowTenable, TDi Technologies, and VMware.

These collaborators will work with the NCCoE project team to provide a practical solution to help manufacturers protect their industrial control system(s) (ICS) from data integrity attacks. The result will be a freely available National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Practice Guide that includes the practical steps needed to implement the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and industry standards and best practices.

Each of these organizations responded to a notice in the Federal Register to submit capabilities that aligned with desired solution characteristics for the project. The accepted collaborators were extended a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement, enabling them to participate in a consortium where they will contribute expertise and hardware or software to help refine a reference design and build an example standards-based implementation. To learn more about the project, read the Protecting Information and System Integrity in Industrial Control System Environments project description.
