Rockwell Automation Endorses Cybersecurity Framework for Manufacturers

Rockwell Automation, Inc. has endorsed the Cybersecurity Framework issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. This voluntary framework, a joint effort of the White House and NIST, reflects input from Rockwell Automation and a diverse group of industry stakeholders who share a common objective to increase the resiliency of and reduce cybersecurity risks to critical infrastructure and manufacturing.

“Rockwell Automation is honored to have actively contributed to the development of the Cybersecurity Framework that will help address cyber risks to critical infrastructure and manufacturing processes alike,” said Keith Nosbusch, chairman and CEO of Rockwell Automation. “This guideline provides a flexible structure that can help organizations improve information security protection programs to manage risks to industrial control and information systems using the Connected Enterprise."

“As the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and information we look forward to working with our customers across industry sectors to help them apply the Framework’s best practices as a complement to new and existing automation and information systems, and to strengthen physical and cyber safeguards that protect their assets, information and overall operations,” said Nosbusch.

Over the past year, Rockwell Automation participated in NIST’s Cybersecurity Framework development process and workshop series. The company collaborated with other private-sector participants and industry groups, NIST, Department of Commerce, Department of Homeland Security and White House representatives to enhance the Framework’s attention to industrial control system security. Company executives also presented at NIST’s workshops and panels.
