The Global Manufacturing Cyber Governance Center (GMCGC) and the GMCGC Global Manufacturing Information Sharing & Analysis Organization (GM-ISAO) strengthen cyber resilience via a trusted international public/private partnership.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Global Manufacturing Ecosystem

TRANSFORMING TO A RESILIENT ECOSYSTEM

Manufacturing innovation combines information and operations technology to drive advanced manufacturing (additive manufacturing, advanced materials, SMART/automated machines. the Internet of Things (IoT) and other technologies) that are igniting intelligent physical production and connected supply chains. Manufacturers must decide how and where to invest in new technologies and identify which ones will drive the most benefits – all of which must be cyber resilient.

Cyber Resilience Alignment to Business Mission

OPERATIONALIZING CYBER RESILIENCE

Five common Manufacturing business/mission objectives provide the necessary context for identifying and managing cybersecurity risk mitigation efforts for the Manufacturing Sector. Other business/mission objectives also need to be addressed, but five core objectives map to key cybersecurity practices that support each objective, allowing the Manufacturing Sector to better prioritize actions and resources according to each individual organization’s and each individual user’s defined needs.

MANUFACTURING RISK SYSTEM CATEGORIZATION

Manufacturing organizational risk is unique.  Risk management strategies must inform and prioritize cybersecurity decisions.  A clear understanding of business drivers and security considerations specific to the organization (business and operations), the Manufacturing System, its environment and supply chain are required.  Recurring risk assessments and validation of business drivers help select targets states for cybersecurity activities that reflect desired outcomes.

HOW WE ARE STRENGTHENING MANUFACTURING CYBER RESILIENCE

OPERATIONALIZING CYBER RESILIENCE

Global Manufacturing includes owners, operators and other stakeholders, each with a role in the manufacturing ecosystem, all dependent upon cyber resilience. To enable operationalizing cyber resilience, a public/private partnership led by Manufacturing owners and operators in collaboration with government (US DHS, US Dept. of Commerce, etc.) established:

ENABLING CYBER RESILIENCE

Moving from a reactive to a proactive security stance requires addressing cybersecurity from a risk-based approach, assessing Maritime- and Port-specific cyber risks and interdependencies, expanding beyond physical aspects of security and safety, and advancing greater real-time information exchange  and sharing”actionable intelligence” and response solutions to enable and ensure systems protection, accessibility, reliability and resiliency.

To advance cyber resilience, a strategic collaborative public/private partnership established the Maritime & Port Security Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (MPS-ISAO), a non-profit Member-led organization.

Cyber Resilience Role-Based Workforce Education

ACHIEVING CYBER RESILIENCE

To achieve cyber resilience, the GM-CGC and the GM-ISAO each have a mission to energize and promote a robust network and an ecosystem of cybersecurity education and workforce development, leveraging best practices (guidance and standards).

To fulfill this mission, in addition to providing a Global Cyber Range already comprised of over 400 courses and a “customizable” cyber range to practice cyber skills, the GM-CGC is working with stakeholders to develop Manufacturing-specific cyber resilience operational guidance, supported by role-based workforce education and sector/cross-sector exercises.
