This talk focuses on the work of a NDIA working group, constituted in November 2015, that is now working to identify the types and boundaries of cybersecurity threats, vulnerabilities, and consequences in the manufacturing environment and define actions to mitigate those risks. They are assessing courses of action and developing implementation plans to incentivize and assist manufacturers (particularly small and medium enterprises in defense supply chains) to improve cybersecurity in manufacturing systems by evolving threat awareness, policies and contract requirements, enhancing security practices, and offering industrial/contractor workforce cybersecurity training.
- Gain critical insights to how industry and DoD are working together to define the scope and nature of the cybersecurity for manufacturing challenge
- Identify cyber risks in their manufacturing networks within the context of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
- Describe how the defense industrial base can preserve and protect the continuously evolving manufacturing capabilities key to national security
