Chemical Sector Added to ICS Cybersecurity Initiative by White House


The Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Cybersecurity Initiative has been expanded to include the chemical industry, according to a White House announcement.

After the disruptive attack on Colonial Pipeline, the ICS Cybersecurity Initiative was first announced in July 2021. Its objective is to enhance critical infrastructure security by promoting and facilitating the deployment of threat detection technologies and systems.

The strategy should concentrate on high-risk chemical facilities and encourage information exchange between the federal government and the chemical industry.
