NIST Solicits Feedback on Cyber Framework Adoption; Adam Sedgewick Comments

1 min read

cybersecurityThe National Institute of Standards and Technology has issued a request for feedback from government agencies and industry on how they implement NIST’s voluntary cybersecurity framework to manage cyber threats and share best practices.

NIST said Thursday it also seeks feedback on the need for possible updates to the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity as well as options for the document’s future management.

“We’re looking forward to receiving feedback on specific questions about its use and how it might be improved,” said Adam Sedgewick, a senior information technology policy adviser at NIST.

The framework contains guidelines and standards that aim to help critical infrastructure system operators and owners manage cyber vulnerabilities.

NIST said it will also use the feedback to craft the agenda for a workshop to be held on April 6-7, 2016 in Maryland.

The agency will accept public comments on the framework through Feb. 9, 2016.
