The Cybersecuring DoD Control Systems Workshop is geared to help architects, engineers, contractors, owners, facility managers, maintenance engineers, physical security specialists, information assurance professionals—essentially anyone involved with implementing cybersecurity in the facility life cycle—to learn the best practice techniques to better protect DoD facilities.
Department of Defense Instruction (DoDI) 8500.01 and DoDI 8510.01 incorporate Platform Information Technology (PIT) and PIT systems into the Risk Management Framework (RMF) process. PIT may consist of both hardware and software that is physically part of, dedicated to or essential in real time to the mission performance of special-purpose systems (i.e., platforms). PIT differs from individual or stand-alone IT products in that it is integral to a specific platform type, as opposed to being used independently or to support a range of capabilities (e.g., major applications, enclaves or PIT systems). A Control System (CS) is a specific type of PIT that consists of combinations of control components (e.g., electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic) that act together to achieve an objective (e.g., transport matter or energy, or maintain a secure and comfortable work environment).
The Cybersecuring DoD Control Systems Workshop will include hands-on classroom exercises and labs to footprint a CS as a hacker would do; use the Cyber Security Evaluation Tool (CSET) to establish a risk baseline and create a System Security Plan; and use the enterprise Mission Assurance Support System (eMASS) to load projects using the new DoDI 8510.01 RMF process. Attendees will gain in-depth experience on using the Committee on National Security Systems Instruction (CNSSI) 1253; National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-53 R4; NIST SP 800-82 R2; the Joint Staff Mission Assurance Vulnerability Benchmarks 2015, the J-BASICS Advanced Cybersecurity Instructions Tactics, techniques and Procedures 2016, and other key publications and tools to load and manage a project through the six steps of the RMF.
