The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) hosts the Industrial Control Systems Joint Working Group (ICSJWG) to facilitate information sharing and reduce the risk to the nation’s industrial control systems.
The ICSJWG provides a vehicle for communicating and partnering across all Critical Infrastructure (CI) Sectors between federal agencies and departments, as well as private asset owners/operators of industrial control systems. The goal of the ICSJWG is to continue and enhance the collaborative efforts of the industrial control systems stakeholder community in securing CI by accelerating the design, development, and deployment of secure industrial control systems.
NCCIC/ICSJWG developed a Fact Sheet for quick reference information about the ICSJWG: NCCIC ICSJWG Fact Sheet.
