The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) today released its Preliminary Cybersecurity Framework after having missed the initial October 10 deadline for the draft to be posted for review and commentary because of the recent government shutdown.
The Framework, intended to bolster cybersecurity for critical infrastructure assets, is being developed with the aid of several thousand security experts who have attended workshops or otherwise contributed to the draft.
“Thanks to a tremendous amount of industry input, the voluntary framework provides a flexible, dynamic approach to matching business needs with improving cybersecurity. We encourage organizations to begin reviewing and testing the Preliminary Framework to better inform the version we plan to release in February,” said Patrick Gallagher, Under Secretary of Commerce for Standards and Technology and NIST Director.
