ABSTRACT

Dams Sector Cybersecurity Framework Implementation Guidance   [open pdf - 1MB]

"The Dams Sector embraces the flexibility the Framework offers. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as the Sector-Specific Agency (SSA), worked with the Dams Sector Coordinating Council (SCC) and Government Coordinating Council (GCC) to develop this Implementation Guidance specifically for Dams Sector owners and operators. This Implementation Guidance provides Dams Sector organizations with: [1] Background on the Framework terminology, concepts, and benefits of its use; [2] A mapping of existing cybersecurity tools and resources used in the Dams Sector that can support Framework implementation; and [3] Detailed Framework implementation steps tailored for Dams Sector owners and operators. The Framework applies to organizations of any size and level of cybersecurity sophistication. For organizations with no formal risk management practices, the Framework provides the foundational principles and elements for building a cybersecurity program. For organizations with a robust cybersecurity program in place, implementing the Framework provides a means to identify areas for improvement and demonstrate that the organization's program aligns with a nationally recognized approach for cyber risk management."
