Abstract: The operation of critical infrastructure has higher stakes than ever before and past security failures have the industry on high alert. The useful part involves understanding what happened and how to prevent it. A corporate security framework is essential for building trustworthy processes and technology systems that reach into all parts of your communication system. Standards organizations like NERC have put best practices in place to address these security threats and provide strong input to that corporate framework. In addition to the work of NERC, the Executive Order regarding critical infrastructure has a special focus on supply chain. The last part of this talk will present you with some important considerations that will make your supply chain even more trustworthy than the requirements of this executive order.
