NIST Plans Cybersecurity Framework Update (Bank Info Security)


The National Institute of Standards and Technology plans to update its 2-year-old cybersecurity framework late next year, says Matt Barrett, program manager.

In part one of a two-part interview, with Information Security Media Group, Barrett characterizes the revision as a minor update, not a major overhaul, but one that refines and clarifies provisions in the existing framework. “Just to be clear, we’re not headed toward a version 2.0 right now; we’re definitely not,” Barrett says. “We’re headed to something that’s more like a 1.1.”
