Manufacturing Engineering Cybersecurity and Networks is a new organization within Vehicle Systems. The primary responsibility for this organization will be defining and implementing Cybersecurity policies, practices and solutions for Manufacturing. Tightly coupled with this responsibility is maintaining and ongoing development of the Plant Floor Network Strategy for the Global Common Controls Architecture. The scope covers all Manufacturing including both Vehicle Systems as well as Global Propulsion Systems in all regions.
The engineers in this group will need to be technically knowledgeable in all of the appropriate GM controls standards such as GCCH, GCCS, GCCB, PFCN / IECN and Plant Floor System applications.
- Design, implement, and support global execution of Manufacturing Cybersecurity initiatives in GM Manufacturing facilities
- Apply framework for implementing and maintaining Cybersecurity at regional Manufacturing sites
- Drive system requirements to minimize potential security risks in a manner that avoids negative impact to Manufacturing Operations
- Represent Manufacturing-specific security and network needs in the application and maintenance of Cyber Security Initiatives
- Define and develop processes and methodologies for designing secure plant floor systems
- Conduct compatibility tests of new hardware and software, ensuring compliance with IT requirements
- Design, Implement and Support Global Execution of network security policies for Industrial Ethernet Controls Networks (IECN)
- Use and train others to use eTools for configuration, troubleshooting and auditing IECN networks
- Define and drive improvements into existing eTools. Define requirements for new eTools.
- Design and Support Execution of Regional Legacy Manufacturing equipment communication networks (Ethernet IP, Profibus, ProfiNet, DeviceNet, etc.)
- Support documentation of processes and procedures related to Manufacturing Cybersecurity Initiatives and Industrial Ethernet Controls Networks (IECN)
- Incorporate lessons learned and cost savings initiatives into the appropriate standards.
