CSET output is a prioritized list of recommendations for improving the cybersecurity posture of the organization’s enterprise and industrial control cyber systems. The tool derives the recommendations from a database of cybersecurity standards, guidelines, and practices. Each recommendation links to a set of actions the user can apply to enhance cybersecurity controls.

CSET’s design calls for an easy installation and use on a stand-alone laptop or workstation. It incorporates a variety of available standards from organizations such as NIST, North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Department of Defense (DoD), and others. When the tool user selects one or more of the standards, CSET opens a set of questions the user can answer. The answers to these questions end up compared against a selected security assurance level, and a detailed report ends up generated that shows areas for potential cybersecurity improvement. CSET provides a means to perform a self-assessment of the security posture of your control system environment.
