The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has released Securing Industrial Control Systems: A Unified Initiative, a multi-year strategy for enhancing ICS security in the U.S., and a companion fact sheet. The initiative features four pillars:

  • Ask more of the ICS community, and deliver more to them.
  • Develop and utilize technology to mature collective ICS cyber defense.
  • Build “deep data” capabilities to analyze and deliver information that the ICS community can use to disrupt the ICS Cyber Kill Chain.
  • Enable informed and proactive security in-vestments by understanding and anticipating ICS risk.

CISA stated that, as part of its new initiative, it will collaborate closely with critical infrastructure sectors to identify ways to mitigate threats to their systems. Access the strategy at DHS CISA.
