While the quantity and breadth of ICS security-related regulations, frameworks, industry standards, and guidance continues to grow, it can be difficult to navigate which best apply and will be useful to your organization. From those under regulation to those looking to start or stay ahead of the curve, taking a hybrid approach may be your best option. This talk focuses on piecing together and re-animating your framework for an extensible and sustainable ICS security program including:

  • How to (re-)start these efforts
  • Available resources to guide your program
  • Evaluating applicability and fit
  • Finding the value in those resources
  • Methods to track and sustain
