NIST Plans to Update Cybersecurity Framework
Last week, it was announced that the national Institute of Standards and Technology’s plans to update its Cybersecurity Framework will support CISA’s mission to ensure products sold to the government are secure by design and default.
According to Jen Easterly, director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, “the framework has served as a powerful tool for providing a common taxonomy to help organizations create cybersecurity programs that align with the organization’s risk tolerance, which enable continuous improvement and facilitate communication around complex topics using a common lexicon.”
NIST must make updates to its’ Cybersecurity Framework to keep pace with the never-ending, always changing threat environment. The cybersecurity landscape has significantly changed in terms of threats, capabilities and technologies since the framework was introduced several years ok. NIST now needs to incorporate new guidance and resources on supply chain risk management and governance.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was founded in 1901 and is now part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Its goal is to promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards, and technology in ways that enhance economic security and improve our quality of life.
