In this four part podcast series, CSIAC subject matter experts (SMEs) conduct a roundtable discussion of the first step of the Risk Management Framework (RMF) process, Categorization, focused specifically on Industrial Control Systems (ICS). The main objective of the categorization phase is to project the potential negative effects upon an organization should certain assets become compromised. This would include the CIA Triad – Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA) – involving the systems within an enterprise and the associated data those systems may process, store or transmit. Based upon the assessment of the possible risks, certain processes or tasks may be employed to mitigate the potential adverse impacts.
In part one of the RMF Categorization podcast series, the SMEs discuss what a security program is and why it is important. A security program defines the people, processes and technologies used to manage cybersecurity risk to the environment in which your system operates. This document serves as the blueprint for how your system operates and responds to the ever changing threat landscape.
