Tasked with creating a cybersecurity policy framework, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) had its work cut out for it—and then some. After all, it’s one thing to agree that organizations and the nation’s critical infrastructure need to be protected. And another to find common ground on how best to proceed. In this episode, we take a look at how the NIST Cybersecurity Framework was born, and where it’s headed once the recently drafted—and more user friendly—updates go into effect.
Some of the topics we cover include:
•To what degree are both the public and private sectors guided by the Cybersecurity Framework?
•In what ways does the Cybersecurity Framework address various technologies such as IoT?
•How does the Cybersecurity Framework weigh in on the challenges specific to vertical industries?
