This discussion will address how manufacturing organizations can take a practical and extensive approach to securing their industrial control systems by implementing commercially available cybersecurity technologies.

This talk will step through the reference architecture and security solutions documented in NIST Special Publication 1800-10, Protecting Information and System Integrity in Industrial Control Systems Environments. Specifically, Dr. Powell will share a modular approach to integrating various commercially available security technologies together to: detect/prevent unauthorized software installation; identify, monitor, record, and analyze security events and incidents within a real-time OT environment; protect computers and ICS networks from potentially harmful applications using allow listing; determine if improper changes are made to a product or system; detect authenticated but unauthorized use of systems; validate the integrity of operating systems and application software files; continuously monitor the network for unusual events or trends; detect malware and mitigate any software designed to damage a computer, server, or computer network.

  • Understand potential cybersecurity risks in the manufacturing sector
  • Learn how to leverage NIST’s Cybersecurity Framework to strengthen manufacturing systems
  • Explore what commercially available technologies can improve cybersecurity within manufacturing environments
