A draft manufacturing implementation of the Cybersecurity Framework, or Profile, has been developed for reducing cybersecurity risk for manufacturers that is aligned with manufacturing sector goals and industry best practices. This Manufacturing "Target" Profile focuses on desired cybersecurity outcomes and can be used to identify opportunities for improving the current cybersecurity posture of a manufacturing system. This Manufacturing Profile provides a voluntary, risk-based approach for managing cybersecurity activities and reducing cyber risk to manufacturing systems. The Manufacturing Profile is meant to enhance but not replace current cybersecurity standards and industry guidelines that the manufacturer is embracing.
