October 16th |Training Track 3A: Asset Management for Energy Provider | NIST NCCOE
Half-day Session – 8:00am – 12:00pm
Description: Monitoring and managing operational technology (OT) assets is an essential component of protecting the nation’s critical infrastructure from cyber attacks. To properly assess cybersecurity risk within the OT network, energy providers must be able to identify and maintain a complete and accurate view of their OT assets, especially the most critical.
The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, a part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), in collaboration with members of the energy community and cyber security technology providers, is working on an OT asset management example solution to address this complex challenge. This project will result in a NIST cybersecurity practice guide (Special Publication 1800 series) that shows how commercially available products can be used to create an example solution for electric utilities and for oil and gas companies to effectively track and manage their assets. The guide will be released in March 2019.
Join security engineers from the NCCoE at NIST, alongside the projects’ leading collaborators, for a detailed description of this project and other ICS Cybersecurity projects. The panel will share their expertise and best practices on asset management for the energy sector, as well as their current efforts in documenting and implementing methods for managing, monitoring and baselining assets and information to help identify potential threats to OT assets.
