Businesses large and small need to manage their cybersecurity risk. But every business is different. Understanding the needs of your business and applying best practices to mitigate the risks your organization faces is the best way to prevent and respond to potential threats.
NISTIR 8183, the ‘Manufacturing Profile’ of the Cybersecurity Framework, can be used as a roadmap for reducing cybersecurity risk in manufacturing systems in a way that is aligned with manufacturing sector goals and industry best practices. Along with the Manufacturing Profile is a three-volume implementation guide:
NISTIR 8259, “Foundational Cybersecurity Activities for IoT Device Manufacturers” describes recommended activities related to cybersecurity that manufacturers should consider performing before their IoT devices are sold to customers.
NIST SP 800-82 Rev. 2, “Guide to Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Security” provides guidance on how to secure Industrial Control Systems (ICS), including Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, Distributed Control Systems (DCS), and other control system configurations such as Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), while addressing their unique performance, reliability, and safety requirements.
When scammers target your business, it can hurt your reputation and your bottom line. In this brochure, learn the signs of scams that target small manufacturers and when to do if you spot a scam.
Cybersecurity protects the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your information. A cybersecurity program provides advantages for small and medium-sized manufacturers. This infographic explains the importance of managing cyber risks for manufacturers.
