Legislation calling on the National Institute of Standards and Technology to develop outcome metrics to demonstrate the effectiveness of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework is scheduled to be considered - and likely amended - at a markup session of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee..

(1) IN GENERAL.—The Institute shall promote the implementation by Federal agencies of the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (in this section and section 20B referred to as the ‘Framework’) by providing to the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Science and Technology Policy, and all other Federal agencies, not later than 6 months after the date of enactment of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, Assessment, and Auditing Act of 2017, guidance that Federal agencies may use to incorporate the Framework into their information security risk management efforts, including practices related to compliance with chapter 35 of title 44, United States Code, and any other applicable Federal law.
