The NCCoE Announces Technology Collaborators for the Securing Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) Project

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) is pleased to announce the initial set of technology partners for the Securing Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) Project: Cisco, Clearwater Compliance, DigiCert, ForeScout, Hyland, Symantec, TDi Technologies, Tempered Networks, Tripwire, Virta Labs, and Zingbox. We expect to finalize additional technology partners to fulfill the project’s required components and capabilities.

In response to a call in the Federal Register, these companies submitted capabilities that aligned with desired solution characteristics. The technology collaborators were extended a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement, enabling them to participate in a consortium where they will contribute expertise and hardware or software to help refine a reference design and build an example standards-based implementation. To learn more about the project, read the project description.

These vendors will work with the NCCoE project team to provide a practical solution for securing the PACS ecosystem. The result will be a freely available National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Practice Guide (NIST’s Special Publication 1800 series) that includes a reference design and a detailed description of the practical steps needed to implement the solution based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, and industry standards and best practices.
