Webinar: Interpretations and Forecasts – Looking Beyond Rumors, Myths and Misunderstandings About the New NIST Cybersecurity Framework

 

On February 12, 2014 the White House released the first version of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.

NIST was directed to create the framework in response to Executive Order 13636, Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity. Since the preliminary framework was released last October, many rumors have been going around about what the framework is or is not. Additionally, a number of organizations have been making what we believe will likely turn out to be inaccurate representations about how the framework should be used and what expectations will be surrounding it.

In this webinar, we will explore a number of the more common scenarios we’ve heard recently and attempt to provide educated but unaffiliated realism around the document, its uses, its gaps, and what’s going to happen moving forward.

While this will be an editorial webinar, and we cannot claim to represent an official stance on anyone’s behalf, we believe our experience in this area and lack of vested interest will provide attendees with the tools – lenses, if you will – with which to better interpret what you hear from other third parties.
