National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published NEMA CPSP 3-2019
Cyber Hygiene Best Practices Part 2, a new white paper that identifies
industry best practices and guidelines that electrical equipment and medical
imaging manufacturers may consider when providing cybersecurity information to
their customers. This paper describes how electroindustry manufacturers and
their customers can work together to improve the level of cybersecurity through
industry best practices and guidelines.
“Managing cybersecurity is a
coordinated effort between the manufacturers that build cyber-secure products
and systems and their customers who follow good cyber-hygiene practices,” said
Jim Gilsinn, formerly the Principal Engineer for Industrial Control Systems and
Cybersecurity at Kenexis. “The practices and guidelines described in this document
are meant to help customers effectively manage their cybersecurity expectations
as they utilize manufactured equipment within the context of their respective
markets (e.g., commercial and residential buildings, industrial equipment, the
electrical grid, hospitals, and surface transportation).”
“Combined with the original Cyber
Hygiene Best Practices document that addresses best practices for improving
cybersecurity for electrical manufacturing facilities, this paper becomes a
valuable tool in the ever-expanding IoT ecosystem,” said NEMA Industry Director
CPSP 3-2019 is available as an electronic download at no
cost on the NEMA website.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) represents nearly 325 electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers that make safe, reliable, and efficient products and systems. Our combined industries account for 370,000 American jobs in more than 6,100 facilities covering every state. These industries produce $124 billion in shipments and $42 billion in exports of electrical equipment and medical imaging technologies per year.
