NIST Announces Cybersecurity Framework Workshop

The National Institute for Standards in Technology (NIST) has announced a Cybersecurity Framework Workshop to be held on April 3rd at its headquarters in Gaithersburg, Maryland.  According to the announcement, "NIST is interested in collecting information about current risk management practices; use of frameworks, standards, guidelines and best practices; and specific industry practices."  The workshop is being held in response to a directive from the recent Cybersecurity Executive Order issued by President Obama that charges NIST to work with the public and private sectors to develop a framework for securing critical infrastructures.  NIST has also issued a Request for Information (RFI) on Developing a Framework To Improve Critical Infrastructure Security.  Comments are due on April 8th.

EDUCAUSE and Internet2 are working with the Higher Education Information Security Council to review the Questions in the RFI to develop a higher education response.
