NIST Releases Update of Industrial Control Systems Security Guide

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued the second revision to its Guide to Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Security.   The revisions include new guidance on how to tailor traditional IT security controls to accommodate unique ICS performance, reliability and safety requirements, as well as updates to sections on threats and vulnerabilities, risk management, recommended practices, security architectures and security capabilities and tools.

A significant addition in this revision is a new ICS overlay offering tailored guidance on how to adapt and apply security controls and control enhancements.  Using the ICS overlay, utilities, chemical companies, food manufacturers, and other ICS users can adapt and refine these security controls to address their specialized security needs.

More specific information, and the Guide itself, are available from the following links:
