The release of this draft project description (from NIST's National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence [NCCoE]) begins a process to further identify project requirements, scope, hardware, and software components for use in a laboratory demonstration environment.

We would like your feedback on this draft to help refine the project scope. The comment period is now open and will close on April 28, 2022 April 14, 2022.

In the laboratory, the NCCoE will build an example solution using commercially available technology that demonstrates an approach for responding to and recovering from a cyber attack within a manufacturing environment by leveraging the following cybersecurity capabilities: event reporting, log review, event analysis, and incident handling and response. The project will result in a freely available NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide.
