Protection of industrial control systems is crucial to the security of our country. The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has announced a project for which it is seeking comment: Detecting and Protecting Against Data Integrity Attacks in Industrial Control System (ICS) Environments.

The project scope is to assist manufacturing organizations in taking a comprehensive approach to enhancing the security of their industrial control systems by leveraging the following cybersecurity capabilities:

  • behavioral anomaly detection
  • security incident and event monitoring
  • industrial control system application white listing
  • malware detection and mitigation
  • change control management
  • user authentication and authorization
  • access control least privilege
  • file integrity checking mechanisms

Commenters from the manufacturing sector are urged to submit comments by July 25, 2019.
