New Special Interest Group Seeks to Boost ICS OT Cyber Defenses

MITRE has announced the formation of a new special interest group (SIG) tasked with improving cyber defenses for Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and Operational Technology (OT). MITRE and the Cybersecurity Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CyManII), a cybersecurity research institute focused on manufacturing and supply chains in the United States, are co-chairing the new SIG. The US Department of Energy’s Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response (CESER) and Homeland Security’s Systems Engineering and Development Institute are both supporting the program. The purpose is to provide a platform for researchers and suppliers to engage and exchange their perspectives and knowledge in order to find and classify vulnerabilities and common attack patterns specific to ICS and other OT systems.
