NIST Cybersecurity Framework:
Release and Next Steps

One year after the President signed EO 13636 (Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity), the National Institute of Standards and Technology has developed a preliminary Cybersecurity Framework and is preparing it for final release. The impending publication of the Framework promises to have wide-ranging effects for the public and private sectors alike. For example, industry may begin to voluntarily adopt the Framework in coordination with the Department of Homeland Security. There are many questions that remain, however, including how the Framework will affect government contracting, whether the Framework may be utilized by third parties such as insurers and courts, and potential regulatory impacts. 
Please join Crowell & Moring and The Chertoff Group along with panelists from National Institute of Standards and Technology, National Security Staff, Department of Homeland Security and the private sector for a lively discussion regarding these and other critical developments as well as what to expect in the coming year.
