GM-ISAO Briefing

Global Manufacturing Cyber Resilience

Critical infrastructure represents the vital assets, systems and networks (physical or virtual), that incapacitation or destruction would have debilitating and catastrophic cascading impacts within and across sectors. Cyber threats and attacks continue to increase in frequency, severity, and sophistication.

Global security and prosperity depends upon a safe, secure and resilient Manufacturing infrastructure supporting a worldwide Manufacturing ecosystem generating about $12 trillion in annual revenue.  The US Manufacturing Sector consists of about 256,000 companies with combined annual sales of about $5.7 trillion.

Cyber attacks targeting the Manufacturing Sector are rising at an incredible pace.  The Manufacturing Sector is the second most-attacked industry behind healthcare, moving financial services to number three.

Moving from a reactive to a proactive security stance requires addressing cybersecurity from a risk-based approach, assessing Manufacturing-specific cyber risks and interdependencies, expanding beyond physical aspects of security and safety, integrating the physical, cyber and human domains, and advancing greater information exchange and sharing solutions to enable and ensure systems protection, accessibility, reliability and resiliency.

The Global Manufacturing ISAO (GM-ISAO)

 

To advance cyber resilience, a strategic collaborative public/private partnership established the Global Manufacturing Information Sharing & Analysis Organization (GM-ISAO). headquartered at the Global Situational Awareness Center (GSAC), Global Institute for Cybersecurity + Research, NASA/Kennedy Space Center.

Defending Global Manufacturing cyberspace requires recognizing cyberspace as an operational domain, managing risk, integrating cyber resilience into mission planning and execution, systems planning and acquisition, increasing awareness and information sharing capabilities, optimizing intelligence-driven cyber defense, increasing operational resilience, and incorporating cybersecurity enterprise-wide. 

Global Manufacturing Cyber Resilience protection efforts require:

Cooperation, collaboration and a sustainable information sharing infrastructure connecting public- and private-sector and cross-sector stakeholders…breaking down existing silos and boundaries.

The real-time availability of “actionable” threat intelligence, analysis, coordinated response, best practice adoption and role-based workforce education.

Cybersecurity Support – Many manufacturers face a huge challenge with limited expertise and resources to devote to operationalizing cyber resilience.

 

Global Security Dependency Manufacturing Sector

Global security and prosperity depends upon a safe, secure and resilient Manufacturing Critical Infrastructure. A disruption or major failure could result in significant economic impacts cascading across multiple sectors and regions.  Global supply chains have grown longer and more complex – increasing susceptibility to a range of global hazards, but improving production agility.

The Manufacturing Sector processes raw materials and produces highly specialized parts and equipment that are essential to primary operations in many industries – transportation, defense, energy, construction, water, communications and IT, chemical, and healthcare.
