NIST Releases a Draft Update to the Cybersecurity Framework (CSF)

down-arrow

On January 10th, The National Institute of Standards and Technology released an update to the The Cybersecurity Framework (CSF). According to NIST, “The draft Version 1.1 of Cybersecurity Framework refines, clarifies, and enhances the predecessor version 1.0.” The changes built upon comments and feedback from industry, a workshop of 800 industry professionals at Gaithersburg, Maryland in April of 2016, and ongoing collaboration with both public and private institutions. 

The CSF is the most comprehensive cybersecurity framework in existence, and represents the expertise of over 3000 industry professionals. Version 1.0 was released in February, 2014. The new update, version 1.1, augments the Framework with contributions on cybersecurity measurement, supply chain risk management, and further refinements. 

From the update: “Cybersecurity threats exploit the increased complexity and connectivity of critical infrastructure systems, placing the Nation’s security, economy, and public safety and health at risk. The Framework enables organizations – regardless of size, degree of cybersecurity risk, or cybersecurity sophistication – to apply the principles and best practices of risk management to improving the security and resilience of critical infrastructure.”

Version 1.1 of the CSF, after a comments period and another workshop in the spring, will likely be published by fall 2017.
