Launch of the Cybersecurity Framework | The White House

Launch of the Cybersecurity Framework | The White House | Cyber Defence | Scoop.it

Today the Obama Administration is announcing the launch of the Cybersecurity Framework, which is the result of a year-long private-sector led effort to develop a voluntary how-to guide for organizations in the critical infrastructure community to enhance their cybersecurity.  The Framework is a key deliverable from the Executive Order on “Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity” that President Obama announced in the 2013 State of the Union.

 

Through the development of this Framework, industry and government are strengthening the security and resiliency of critical infrastructure in a model of public-private cooperation.  Over the past year, individuals and organizations throughout the country and across the globe have provided their thoughts on the kinds of standards, best practices, and guidelines that would meaningfully improve critical infrastructure cybersecurity.  The Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) consolidated that input into the voluntary Cybersecurity Framework that we are releasing today.

 

The Framework gathers existing global standards and practices to help organizations understand, communicate, and manage their cyber risks.  For organizations that don’t know where to start, the Framework provides a road map.  For organizations with more advanced cybersecurity, the Framework offers a way to better communicate with their CEOs and with suppliers about management of cyber risks.  Organizations outside the United States may also wish use the Framework to support their own cybersecurity efforts.

 

Each of the Framework components (the Framework Core, Profiles, and Tiers) reinforces the connection between business drivers and cybersecurity activities.  The Framework also offers guidance regarding privacy and civil liberties considerations that may result from cybersecurity activities.

Higher Ed InfoSec Council's curator insight, February 12, 5:33 PM

Also of note: "Though the adoption of the Framework is voluntary, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has established the Critical Infrastructure Cyber Community (C3) Voluntary Program as a public-private partnership to increase awareness and use of the Cybersecurity Framework.  The C3 Voluntary Program will connect companies, as well as federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners, to DHS and other federal government programs and resources that will assist their efforts in managing their cyber risks.  Participants will be able to share lessons learned, get assistance, and learn about free tools and resources that can help them."
