MxD launches Cyber Playbook

MxD launched the Cyber Playbook: Ensuring Cybersecurity in Additive Manufacturing, the second playbook in its cyber series. It addresses unique considerations for Department of Defense Risk Management Framework compliance in the deployment of additive manufacturing devices, or 3D printers. 

The playbook is an essential tool for companies looking to incorporate cybersecurity requirements into their product design and documentation. It is intended to supplement existing federal guidance, summarize relevant cybersecurity frameworks and processes, and clarify interpretation of certain system engineering requirements in the context of 3D printers. 

“As the leading industry targeted, ensuring strong cybersecurity measures in manufacturing is crucial,” said Matt Taylor, vice president of projects and engineering at MxD. “This playbook provides a comprehensive framework for identifying and addressing potential vulnerabilities and is a significant resource for companies who work with the DoD looking to deploy additive manufacturing devices.” 

As the National Center for Cybersecurity Manufacturing, MxD is committed to preparing U.S. manufacturers for the increased threats they face as they increase the connectivity of their operations, within their factories and across the supply chain. The Cyber Playbook is available on the MxD Cyber Resource Hub.
