Industrial Control Systems Secure by Design

What is ICSSbD®?

ICSSbD®, The Industrial Control Systems Secure by Design toolkit is a proprietary methodology that Mangan Cybersecurity uses to organize and ensure a client’s OT cybersecurity is secure. ICSSbD® is Mangan’s Cybersecurity business guide, process, and cybersecurity management lifecycle incorporated into OT cyber resiliency from initial planning, and preparation through to systems retirement.

The ICSSbD® asset-based model is centered around a Mitre Att&ck® knowledge base. The assessment methodology is aligned with the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) CSF (Cybersecurity Framework). ICSSbD® influences all aspects of a cybersecurity project. This includes a fundamental belief that good design and proper protection should go hand-in-hand, and that system designs should integrate cybersecurity elements at the outset, instead of adding them on later and instilling a culture of cybersecurity into the lifeblood of the business.
