Cybercore Integration Center

The U.S. is vulnerable to a cyberattack against the critical infrastructure providing electrical power, clean water and other vital services to ensure our national security, lifeline services and economic prosperity. Industrial control systems (ICS) serves as the command center for these vital assets.

Idaho National Laboratory invested in the Cybercore Integration Center to enable partnerships across federal agencies, private industry and university partners to secure control systems from cyberthreats.

Cybercore brings together experts in critical infrastructure security assessments, cyber forensic analysis, threat detection and consequence-based targeting to provide real-world technical solutions and innovations that protect operational environments from an ever-evolving threat landscape. Seasoned threat analysts work in concert with experienced power engineers, cyber researchers and control systems experts to develop novel, comprehensive solutions to protect vital control systems from cyberthreats.

Cybercore aligns national science and engineering resources, technical expertise and collaborative partnerships to focus on scalable and sustainable control system cybersecurity solutions that protect the U.S. grid, other critical infrastructure and military systems. The programs partner to provide physical and virtual environments to accelerate the pipeline of engineers, operators, and responders of cyber-physical systems.
