Registration Now Open for Cybersecurity Framework Workshop 2017
May 16-17, 2017
By NIST News - March 30, 2017
This workshop will offer participants the opportunity to:

- Share and learn about Cybersecurity Framework users’ experiences that will help others in making effective use of the Framework,
- Discuss and share their views about proposed updates to the Framework to assist NIST in finalizing Version 1.1 later in 2017, and
- Learn about new Framework-related policy issues and the progress of others' technical work.

It will include multiple plenary sessions as well as concurrent breakout sessions. There will be ample opportunity for networking. The current agenda is available here.

The Framework has been available and used by many organizations across the nation’s critical infrastructure and other sectors since February 2014 when it was published. It also is being used in other countries. This workshop is designed for people who already have a foundational knowledge of Framework. NIST recommends that registrants visit the Framework’s webpage and the Framework Overview webcast to gain foundational knowledge before the workshop.

Among other information, visitors to that webpage will find videos on two webcasts held on March 1 that introduce and review the Framework and describe in detail the proposed changes.

All attendees must be pre-registered to gain entry to the NIST campus. Photo identification must be presented at the main gate to be admitted to the conference. International attendees are required to present a passport. Attendees must wear their conference badge at all times while on the campus. There is no on-site registration for meetings held at NIST.

Webcast Participation is Available:

Based on past workshops, this meeting is expected to generate high levels of interest. Plenary sessions and some breakout sessions of the Workshop will be made available via webcasts. Those with a casual interest in the Framework are encouraged to participate via webcast. To register for webcast participation only, visit the NIST WEBCAST (ONLY) REGISTRATION page.
