NIST Project Aims to Help Companies Tackle Data Integrity Challenges

1 min read

cybersecurityThe National Institute of Standards and Technology has released a white paper that suggests various methods for companies to avoid and recover from a data integrity attack.

NIST said Tuesday its National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence produced the draft document with the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center and several technology vendors in an effort to help businesses protect their data from insider threats and malicious software.

“The FS-ISAC will continue working with the NCCoE, as well as industry and federal agencies, to identify solutions for reducing the impact of data integrity attacks, such as destructive malware,” John Carlson, chief of staff at FS-ISAC.

NCCoE is exploring strategies to recover enterprise operating systems, applications, databases, system configurations and user files through the center’s data integrity project.

The center will collect public input on the project through Jan. 22, 2016, and use gathered feedback to develop a new cybersecurity practice guide for the private sector.
