Cybersecurity Programs Deployment in Industrial Control Environments
Cybersecurity Programs in the private sector of industrial control environments is growing with interest. Many CISOs and system owners struggle with implementation due to resource, time and budget constraints. The market trend has been to start with an Assessment, only later to find out that the assessment findings are High-Level, provide little value, and alienated the networking/security team within the organization. This presentation will define a better way to start the adoption of Cyber Security in Industrial Control Systems using the NIST Risk Management Framework, NIST 800-82 and IEC-62443.
