CISA Publishes ICSJWG Quarterly Newsletter – 10-14-19

Today the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) published the September 2019 issue of the Industrial Control System Joint Working Group (ICSJWG) Quarterly Newsletter. This publication is not to be confused with the old ICS-CERT Monitor (last published in January 2018). Articles in this issue include:

2019 Biannual Meetings – Springfield;
National Cybersecurity Awareness Month;
ICSJWG Webinar Series;
Call to Action: Mobilizing Community Discussion to Improve Information Sharing About Vulnerabilities in Industrial Control Systems and Critical Infrastructure

The last two items are just the first couple of paragraphs from the longer articles (for which I have provided links). Neither author is an employee at CISA, and their article introductions are proceeded by a “Contributed Content Disclaimer” notice. The CISA Industrial Security landing page is actively soliciting article submissions for the December 2019 edition. Such submissions will be accepted up until December 9th, 2019. There is no clear information about how to submit, but I suspect that the email address is probably the way to go.


Looking at the ICSJWG web page it looks like these newsletters have been published since 2009. I am sorry that I had missed them. The problems that plagued the official Monitor (four-color glossy corporate report format) are not present in this newsletter. I particularly like the fact they include articles about ICS cybersecurity issues that are not government speak nor vendor advertorials. I am glad that CISA is now advertising these publications and I look forward to the December issue.
