Committee 2-12c Cybersecurity Protection Standard Task Group

Committee Charter This task group is developing IPC-1792, Standard for Cybersecurity Management in the Manufacturing Industry Supply Chain. This standard provides a system for reducing manufacturing supply-chain cybersecurity risks. Within this system, the standard identifies four models (levels) of cybersecurity protection which can be used to assess a manufacturing facility’s cybersecurity model to show existing cybersecurity protections and to identify steps to take to achieve higher cybersecurity models.

This standard is applicable for internal cybersecurity (i.e., within the environment in which the product is assembled) and external cybersecurity (i.e., as products and materials are moved between locations as part of their supply chain). This standard also includes mechanisms for self- or third-party assessment to the four cybersecurity models as well as a mechanism of validation by a certificate authority (CA).
