Cybersecurity Framework: Where Do We Go From Here?

Protiviti just published a Flash Report on the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) final version of its Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity. I highly recommend that anyone involved in cybersecurity in their organization become familiar with the NIST Framework by reading our report. This framework could end up being the new game in town.

Just over a year ago, President Obama signed an Executive Order calling for increased cybersecurity for the critical infrastructure of the United States. On the anniversary of this Executive Order, NIST issued the final Framework, along with a companion NIST Roadmap for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity. The Framework and Roadmap are the result of a 12-month development process that included the release of multiple versions for public comment and multiple working sessions with the private sector and security stakeholders.

Our Flash Report provides an overview of and observations on the new Framework. You can read it here.
