Abstract

This document provides the Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) implementation details developed for the manufacturing environment. The "Manufacturing Profile" of the Cybersecurity Framework can be used as a roadmap for reducing cybersecurity risk for manufacturers that is aligned with manufacturing sector goals and industry best practices. This Manufacturing Profile 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 that the manufacturer is embracing. [Supersedes SP NISTIR 8183 (September 2017): https://www.nist.gov/publications/cybersecurity-framework- manufacturing-profile]
