Cyber Security Work at OMG - Task Force Levels
Ron Townsen, Sr. Lead Engineer, General Dynamics, OMG C4I and Andrew Watson, Vice President and Technical Director, OMG
Cyber threats facing a nation's critical infrastructure, mission-critical systems, or any Internet of Things (IoT) system, demand a cyber infrastructure that matches their combined enormity and complexity. Risk management solutions must be capable of understanding intricate attack patterns and assessing complex vulnerabilities to give stakeholders confidence in their system's ability to withstand malicious attacks.

Currently -- understanding, assessing and managing the risks of complex cyber and/or cyber-physical systems is a very costly and challenging task that requires the expertise of well-trained and seasoned security professionals, a scarce commodity. The traditional approach to risk assessment relies primarily on informal inputs such as documentation and personnel interviews, making this approach subjective, non-comprehensive, non-repeatable, and prone to inaccuracies about the true nature of risks and vulnerabilities involved.
OMG's C4I Task Force Request For Information (RFI) is currently open for response “Cyber Security Protection for Front Line Real-Time Systems RFI” seeking input on a) How to develop Standards to move Tool/Integration community forward to reduce costs and focus on higher quality system development b) What area of standards can be addressed to reduce cost in developing Cyber Security solutions and designs for systems and c) What can be done to integrate current standards that will allow standards based tools to better support design, development and life-cycle support to reduce costs and control costs.
We welcome you to join the conversation.
