One of the columns in my attribute table is entitled NAICS_1 and I'm supposed to display only the objects with an NAICS_1 of a specific value.

How do I filter the attribute table using ArcMap to only select and display the specific value?

There you can add a condition. For instance, to only show 'Coastline' features in the Natural Earth Coastline dataset, you would add a filter that looks like this:

Apply and you're done.
