Project will create and release NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. – August 7, 2018 — Veracity Industrial Networks, an award-winning developer of Industrial SDN-based technology for operational networks, today announced they have been selected by the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) as technology collaborators in the Energy Sector Asset Management (ESAM) Project.
As part of this collaboration, the NCCoE will compose and release a publicly available National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Practice Guide (Special Publication 1800 series), which will describe a reference architecture and example solution to help organizations in the energy sector more effectively identify, control, and monitor their operational technology (OT) assets.
Veracity has been working on multiple Department of Energy projects, including Project “Chess Master,” designed to explore options for providing cybersecurity to critical infrastructure in the energy space. The current NCCoE project allows Veracity a vehicle to share the findings.
“We are pleased to be selected as one of the industry leaders who will define the next level of best practices for OT security” said Paul Myer, Veracity CEO. “Veracity is dedicated to bringing technologies and procedures to improve the security of our critical infrastructure.”
Veracity offers a full demonstration lab that potential customers can use to explore the Veracity Platform in a virtual, simulated network environment. To learn more and request a demonstration, go to https://veracity.io/demo/
