On February 13, 2014, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) plans to publish a comprehensive and detailed cybersecurity framework for critical infrastructure sectors. Developed pursuant to a February 2013 executive order issued by President Obama, this cybersecurity framework promises to fundamentally alter how critical infrastructure asset owners and technology suppliers develop, implement and update their cyber risk assessment and protection systems.
This wide-ranging and intricate framework will not only lay the foundation for changes in cybersecurity initiatives across the United States, it will also spark changes in how regulators, policy makers, standards-setting bodies and security professionals view cybersecurity challenges, obligations and practices.
The ICS-ISAC and DCT Associates have partnered to bring you a cutting-edge webinar that will give you a head start in understanding and navigating the final published framework. We have pulled together the top government and industry officials who can explain to you:
• What the framework is and how it was developed;
• What you need to know immediately to understand, adopt and implement the framework;
• What you need to know going forward to keep pace with the framework’s evolving nature;
• How the framework fits into your existing plans;
• How to communicate the framework within your organization;
• How the framework relates to existing standards and guidelines; and,
• Much more.

The Industrial Control System Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ICS-ISAC) is a member driven organization supported by valued industry partners. It exists to bring together key stakeholders for the purpose of sharing knowledge about risks, threats and best practices across our shared critical infrastructure. The Center was created to provide the ICS community with a common platform where collaboration can be performed in an environment best suited to the needs of all involved parties.
Interested organizations, researchers, vendors, and asset owners can become a part of the Industrial Control System Information Sharing and Analysis Center at ICS-ISAC.org.
