Ron Ross, a National Institute of Standards and Technology fellow, said the agency integrated more privacy controls for Revision 5 of Special Publication 800-53 focused on cybersecurity and supply chain matters, Fifth Domain reported Wednesday.
Ross, who leads the Federal Information Security Modernization Act Implementation Project at NIST, told the publication that the Office of Management and Budgetâs delayed review of SP 800-53 has also pushed back the relase date of related guidelines.
âThat document, as long as itâs being held up for its final public draft, thatâs kind of put a hold on six other publications,â he said. âWeâve got things in the queue.â
According to Ross, the fifth revision covers security controls spanning program management, privacy and supply chain security. He added that he anticipates the final draft of NISTâs 800-160 Vol. 2, which covers cyber resiliency in system development, to be released on Sept. 5.
Rossâ comments come after NIST delayed its release of SP 800-171 Revision 2, which is used by Department of Defense contractors as cybersecurity guidelines for handling unclassified information.
