What is the Roadmap Awareness Campaign?

The chemical industry dedicates immense time and resources toward ensuring the safety of its personnel, customers, and surrounding community, but in today’s environment of growing cyber threats, a chemical plant is not safe unless its systems are secure.

Through the Chemical Sector Coordinating Council (CSCC), the chemical industry is working in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to address industrial control systems (ICS) security.  Published in September 2009, the Roadmap to Secure Control Systems in the Chemical Sector (“Roadmap”) is the result of the collaborative effort of DHS and representatives from the chemical industry, as well as the vendor community.  The Roadmap defines key milestones over a 10-year period designed to advance the security of ICS in the chemical industry.  This awareness campaign targets several key milestones noted in the first two years of this process.
