NCCoE Seeks Comment on Manufacturing Sector ICS Cyber Guide

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE), a partnership of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the state of Maryland, is seeking public comment by Dec. 6 on a draft report (NISTIR 8219) detailing cybersecurity guidance aimed at the manufacturing sector that employs industrial control systems to monitor and control physical processes.

The draft report, NCCoE said, recognizes that industrial control systems have become more vulnerable to cybersecurity threats as the manufacturing sector has increasingly married those systems to commercial IT technologies. As a result of that increasing threat, NCCoE and NIST feature in the report “a set of behavioral anomaly detection (BAD) capabilities to support cybersecurity in manufacturing operations.”
