CHIPS Articles: Cybersecurity Framework Webinars

Cybersecurity Framework Webinars
Coming March 1st
By NIST News - February 21, 2017
On January 10, 2017 NIST released proposed updates to the Cybersecurity Framework. This draft Version 1.1 of the Cybersecurity Framework seeks to clarify, refine, and enhance the Framework. Updates were derived from feedback NIST received since publication of Cybersecurity Framework Version 1.0.

More specifically, the draft revision (version 1.1) seeks to:
- Clarify use of Implementation Tiers and their relationship to Profiles
- Enhance guidance for applying the Framework for supply chain risk management
- Provide guidance on metrics and measurements using the Framework
- Add the concept of identity proofing and expands authorization

This webinar will provide the audience with an opportunity to further explore the proposed Framework updates. NIST will provide an understanding of what is proposed in the version 1.1 draft, and describe the process for finalizing the proposed updates, leaving plenty of time for questions and answers.

For more information, please visit the Cybersecurity Framework Homepage.

NIST is offering both morning and afternoon webinars, for your convenience. If you're interested in the overview and update, please make sure to register for both. There will be a short 15 minute break between the two sessions.
