Assuring Cyber Security for Industrial Control Systems

I was asked by CSIS, the Center for Strategic and International Studies to prepare a white paper for them as part of their charter to produce recommendations for the non-partisan Blue Ribbon Commission on Cyber Security to present to the next administration, regardless of who wins the November election in the United States.

The white paper, with permission of CSIS, is posted here.

I want to acknowledge the group of peer reviewers who assisted me in this work. Their names appear in the white paper.

I hope that with the publication and wide dissemination of the recommendations we made in this white paper that industrial control system cyber security will take a front burner in the policy made by the next administration.
