ONG-ISAC & NIST Briefing

Abstract:

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has updated the widely used Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), its landmark guidance document for reducing cybersecurity risk. CSF Version 2.0 now explicitly aims to help all organizations — not just those in critical infrastructure, its original target audience — to manage and reduce risks. NIST has updated the CSF’s core guidance and created a suite of resources to help all organizations achieve their cybersecurity goals, with added emphasis on governance as well as supply chain risk management. This update is the outcome of a multiyear process of discussions and public comments aimed at making the framework more effective. This discussion will focus on the update process for CSF 2.0, the changes proposed by stakeholders, and new resources for implementation.

After the presentation, there will be a roundtable discussion for our members to discuss their use of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework
