Executive Order 13636, Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, has directed NIST to work with stakeholders to develop a voluntary framework for reducing cyber risks to critical infrastructure. This cybersecurity framework is being developed in an open manner with input from stakeholders in industry, academia, and government, including a public review and comment process, workshops, and other means of engagement.
The fourth Cybersecurity Framework workshop was hosted September 11-13, 2013 in Richardson, TX by the University of Texas at Dallas. At this workshop, NIST presented the draft Preliminary Cybersecurity Framework for discussion. Draft materials were posted on this site for participant review by late August 2013; participants were asked to review posted materials prior to arrival at the Workshop and to come prepared to offer substantive input on the level of guidance, presentation of the Cybersecurity Framework, implementation, and governance.
Target Audience: Critical Infrastructure Owners and Operators and cybersecurity staff. Specifically those who have operational, managerial and policy experience and responsibilities for cybersecurity, technology and/or standards development for Critical Infrastructure companies.
