Download the slides (PDF)

State and local CIOs and CISOs are invited to NIST's National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) to learn about resources for the implementation of the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, Executive Order 13636. The Framework provides a structure that state and local governments can use to create, guide, assess or improve comprehensive cybersecurity programs.

NIST released version 1.0 of the Framework on February 12, 2014. The release of the Framework marks the beginning of several areas of follow-on work to develop tools to help state and local governments implement the Framework, integrating and leveraging existing cyber efforts. The goal of this meeting is to lay out a plan of work for organizations assisting state and local government information officers and prioritize tasks for the coming year.
