NIST has begun to evaluate the 130 comments it received in response to its Request for Information to evaluate and improve its flagship cybersecurity guidance document, the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity. NIST is seeking to determine whether and how to update that framework, which is used widely across the globe by organizations of all sizes. The RFI also sought comment on NIST’s National Initiative for Improving Cybersecurity in Supply Chains – a new public-private partnership that will seek to address cybersecurity supply chain risk management issues – as well NIST’s other related efforts.
