Information Security Continuous Monitoring Workshop


STS Systems Support, LLC (SSS) is offering a 4-day course on Information Security Continuous Monitoring for Federal Information Systems and Organizations along with an Industrial Controls Systems (ICS) 'add-on, if needed. The course explores new/updated guidance, policy and procedures for implementing a well-developed and thorough approach for building a continuous monitoring program IAW SP 800-137, 800-39, 800-55, 800-128, 800-37 (Rev. 1), 800-53 (Rev. 4 [soon Rev. 5]), 800-53A, and 800-82 (Rev. 2).


One area that requires more continuous monitoring is in the Industrial Controls Systems (ICS) arena. Clearly, ICS has become a global phenomenon and a vital part of the world economy. They have made it easier to control complex industrial operations and facilities, enhancing productivity and efficiency in the process. Unfortunately, our reliance on ICS has led to a kind of dependence, which leaves industry vulnerable to cyberattacks, so it makes sense to do what we can to keep ourselves secure.


This in-depth course builds on the principles of the NIST Risk Management Framework (Step 6) and supporting NIST guidance (Risk Management, Performance Measurements, Security Control Catalogue, Security Control Assessment Procedures, Configuration Management, System Development Life Cycle, etc.). It familiarizes students with the new continuous monitoring guidance relating to understanding the process, identifying procedures, developing an organizational strategy and ultimately, incorporating a continuous monitoring program into the organizational mission/business functions. It also includes the methodologies NIST recommends to harden an ICS IAW SP 800-82 Rev.2 which includes supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, distributed control systems (DCS), and other control system configurations such as Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) that are often found in the industrial control sectors. ICS are typically used in industries such as electric, water and wastewater, oil and natural gas, transportation, chemical, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, food and beverage, and discrete manufacturing (e.g., automotive, aerospace, and durable goods.)
