Standardization of best practices has proliferated on account of both the complexities involved in managing the security of edge devices as well as the high-value nature of many of the assets which act as extensions to edge solutions. This effort involves both public and private bodies, and currently is largely voluntary. However, without sufficient industry-led management of edge security, it is likely that regulation of the technology will become onerous.
While the literature on edge-related standards is complex and frequently industry-specific, there are many commonalities between the different recommendations. A unified network security management approach is well equipped to satisfy the assortment of best practices.
This document is intended to provide some useful pointers into the vast body of standards. It is, however, non-exhaustive.
These public (FERC) and private (NERC) entities provide standards/regulations for the energy industry. The guidelines are also useful in other critical infrastructure industries.
