Industrial Security Design Guides

Design Considerations for Securing Industrial Automation Networks

We collaborated with Cisco® to develop Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) Architectures to provide education, design guidance, and best practices. These documents provide design considerations to deploy a holistic defense-in-depth industrial security policy to help secure networked assets. Leverage the specific design considerations to help with the successful design and deployment of an Industrial Demilitarized Zone (IDMZ). You can use Cisco Identity Services Engine within industrial automation plant-wide architectures.
