TheÂ National Institute of Standards and Technology hasÂ publishedÂ a draft guide on how to achieve cyber resiliency acrossÂ information technology systems.
NIST said Wednesday the guideline titled “Systems Security Engineering: Cyber Resiliency Considerations for the Engineering of Trustworthy Secure Systems” intends toÂ address cyber resiliency issues relevant to organizationsÂ that are developing new IT systems as well as entities that are operatingÂ legacy IT platforms.
The document is the first in a series of publications that NIST developed to support the agency’sÂ flagship systems security engineering guideline calledÂ “Systems Security Engineering: Considerations for a Multidisciplinary Approach in the Engineering of Trustworthy Secure Systems.”
Cyber resilient systems feature built-inÂ security safeguards in theÂ system architecture and design,Â NIST noted.
Those platforms demonstrate the capacity toÂ withstand cyber attacks and continue to operate in a compromised state.
The draft guide includes factors that organizations should consider to achieveÂ cyberÂ resiliency with their existing and future IT products, systemsÂ and services.
The guideline is also designed to informÂ investment decisions related to cyber resiliency.
NIST will accept feedback on the draft guide untilÂ May 18.
