NIST Releases Draft Preliminary Cybersecurity Framework in Advance of Dallas Workshop

On August 28, 2013, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released the first publically available draft of the preliminary Cybersecurity Framework, which is being developed at the direction of President Obama’s February Executive Order on critical infrastructure cybersecurity. The Executive Order requires NIST to issue a preliminary draft of the Framework by October 10, 2013.

In anticipation of that deadline, and to give stakeholders an opportunity to participate in the revision of the draft, NIST will host a fourth and final workshop on September 11-13, 2013 at the University of Texas at Dallas before issuing the preliminary Cybersecurity Framework for public comment.
