Cybersecurity Update: NIST Preliminary "Critical Infrastructure" Cyber Framework
Last week, the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) issued a new request for comment on the preliminary version of its cybersecurity framework to implement parts of the President’s Executive Order on “critical infrastructure” cybersecurity; the latest version has incorporated feedback from an earlier request for information. On April 8, 2013, the Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) submitted a comment letter on the NIST framework. NIST plans to finalize the framework by next February.
MCUA continues to coordinate on cybersecurity regulatory and legislative issues.
