A draft manufacturing implementation of the Cybersecurity Framework, or Profile, has been developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to establish a roadmap for reducing cybersecurity risk for manufacturers. The Profile focuses on how cybersecurity can support typical manufacturing business objectives and is aligned with industry best practices, including NIST Special Publication 800-82 Guide to Industrial Control System Security . The Manufacturing Profile can be used by organizations to express desired state, as well as assess current state. It provides a voluntary, risk-based approach for managing cybersecurity activities and reducing cyber risk to manufacturing systems. The Manufacturing Profile is meant to enhance but not replace current cybersecurity standards and industry guidelines used by manufacturers.
Please send you questions and comments, including reviews of the Manufacturing Profile, to NIST at firstname.lastname@example.org
