Cybersecurity White Paper Development Sub-Committee

In order for the mining industry to remain resilient to cybersecurity threats, especially with increased remote work, increased educational resources has been identified as a key need for a variety of cybersecurity related topics. 

The Sub-Committee identified the need for white papers on the following topics: 

  1. Cybersecurity and remote work – Cybersecurity risks associated with working remotely. 
  2.  IT/OT Convergence – General information on cyber ownership of IT and OT operations under one team to enable centralized management, cost efficiency, holistic monitoring and detection. 
  3. Data Protection – A basic framework for protecting important data and covers threats, vulnerabilities, protection plans, and data classification. 
  4. Selecting a cloud partner – When to bring on premises, appropriate security pieces from vendors, forming industry standards. 

These white papers are now in the content development stage and are being worked on by participants. If you have expertise in these areas and want to be a part of one or many of these projects, click here to get involved.
