The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published NEMA CPSP 2-2018 Cyber Hygiene Best Practices, which outlines industry best practices and guidelines for electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers to raise their level of cybersecurity sophistication in manufacturing facilities and engineering processes.

“This paper follows seven fundamental principles,” says Jim Gilsinn, principal engineer for industrial control systems and cybersecurity at Kenexis. “It provides guidelines for both proactive and reactive security with a focus on people, processes, and technology. Given the increasing trend of IoT devices and systems, the information provided in this document is a valuable reference tool for electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers.”

NEMA Industry Director Steve Griffith will share strategies gleaned from this white paper at IoT World May 16 during an interactive panel discussionMinimize Cybersecurity Risks in the Development of IoT Solutions, as well as during his keynote at the IoT Global Innovation Forum July 10-11, Electrical Manufacturers’ Role in Mitigating IoT Cybersecurity Risks. 

NEMA CPSP 2-2018 is available as an electronic download at no cost on the NEMA website.
