Critical Manufacturing Sector Security Guide


The Critical Manufacturing Sector Security Guide consolidates effective industry security practices into a framework for Critical Manufacturing owners and operators to select and implement security activities and measures that promote the protection of personnel, public health, public safety, and public confidence.  Owners and operators may review the document in full or focus on specific security practice components that address their specific security needs or augment existing security practices. Though Critical Manufacturing Sector security practices are frequently integrated across the enterprise (especially with increasingly converging physical and cyber technologies), they can be organized into four major categories: physical, cyber, personnel, and supply chain.  The guide discusses these practices and provides additional information on the various tools, capabilities, and references available to owners and operators.
