Modern ICS directly manage complex and critical technological processes. Accidents caused by vulnerabilities in the energy, chemical, transport and other industries can lead to huge losses not only in business, but also to severe environmental consequences, including adversely affecting human health and life. After the end of the active phase of hostilities against the Russian invaders, restoring critical infrastructure and industrial production in Ukraine will become even more actual. The issue of improving their security, including cyber security, will be urgent. This paper presents an overview and analysis of the provisions of the second (current) edition of the Industrial Control Systems Security Guide (NIST SP 800-82 rev.2) issued by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology. The structure of the guide, its connections with other documents, strengths and weaknesses are considered, along with conclusions about the expediency of adaptation in Ukraine.
