Review - NCOE Cybersecurity for the Manufacturing Sector

Earlier this week the National Institute of Standards and Technology published a notice in the Federal Register (87 FR 78942-78944) inviting organizations to provide letters of interest describing products and technical expertise to support and demonstrate security platforms for the “Responding to and Recovering from a Cyberattack: Cybersecurity for the Manufacturing Sector” project. This project will be a collaborative effort with the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE).

NCCoE expects that letters of interest seeking to be part of the project need to acknowledge the importance of and commit to provide:

“Access for all participants' project teams to component interfaces and the organization's experts necessary to make functional connections among security platform components.

“Support for development and demonstration of the Responding to and Recovering from a Cyberattack: Cybersecurity for the Manufacturing Sector project, which will be conducted in a manner consistent with the following standards and guidance: FIPS 200, FIPS 201, SP 800-82 and SP 800-53, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, and the NIST Privacy Framework.

Interested parties can access the request for a letter of interest template by visiting the project website and completing the letter of interest webform. The project will begin moving forward as soon as enough completed and signed letters of interest have been returned to address all the necessary components and capabilities, but no earlier than January 23, 2023, so that is the effective deadline for submission.
