Cyber threats against Industrial Control Systems (ICS) continue to increase in intensity, frequency, and complexity. Yet, basic cybersecurity practices within many ICS organizations continue to be an afterthought or significantly less than needed. This document was developed as a tool to help facilitate the communication of strong, basic cybersecurity principles to the leadership of ICS organizations.
Through conversation with various stakeholders, the need for a document that conveys concise cybersecurity concepts and strategies to organizational leadership became apparent. Thus, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Industrial Control System Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT), with direction from the Industrial Control System Joint Working Group (ICSJWG), developed this document to support communication and improve cybersecurity practices across the Nation’s critical infrastructure (CI).
