The Industrial Control Systems Joint Working Group (ICSJWG) was created to coordinate control systems security initiatives and operate as a body within the NIPP partnership framework under the auspices of CIPAC. The ICSJWG now provides a formal mechanism for the coordination of activities and programs across government and private sector stakeholders. The result is a forum for government and private sector partners to engage in a broad spectrum of critical infrastructure protection and resilience activities.
The ICSJWG is comprised of two subgroups, one for coordination with government stakeholders and the other for private sector stakeholders and partnerships. The ICSJWG coordinates and builds upon the NIPP partnership framework for control systems security efforts by leveraging activities sponsored by members of the Government Coordinating Councils (GCCs) and/or Sector Coordinating Councils (SCCs).
