NIST to Demonstrate CyberX Industrial Control Systems Cybersecurity
Thursday, October 19, 2017 | Comments

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has chosen to demonstrate how the CyberX cybersecurity platform can help accelerate adoption of behavioral anomaly detection technology.

CyberX is collaborating with NIST to help industrial organizations reduce risk by detecting and responding faster to targeted attacks, malware and insider threats. CyberX's platform enables organizations to move from simple industrial control systems (ICS) perimeter security to continuous ICS threat monitoring, asset discovery and threat intelligence.

"Recent cyberattacks on industrial organizations make it very clear that insufficient ICS security has a direct impact on the bottom line," said Omer Schneider, CEO and co-founder of CyberX. "A key benefit of deploying CyberX at the NCCoE is the ability to help businesses implement active ICS/supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) cyber defense so they can continuously identify and counter threats. We are delighted to support NIST on this important initiative."

As part of the NCCoE project, CyberX will be demonstrated in simulated manufacturing environments. The project will result in a NIST cybersecurity practice guide demonstrating how companies can strengthen controls with behavioral anomaly detection, without impacting the performance of their operational technology environments.

In addition, the security characteristics of behavioral anomaly detection will be mapped to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), a practical and widely used standard for operationalizing controls based on business objectives.
