The Computer Security Division (CSD), a component of NIST’s Information Technology Laboratory (ITL), provides standards, guidelines and technology to protect information systems against threats to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and services.
CSD responds to numerous challenges and opportunities
FY2016, CSD continues to develop standards, metrics, tests, and validation programs to promote, measure, and validate the security in information systems and services. Recognizing the potential benefits of more automation in technical security operations. The CSD continues to work closely with federal agencies to improve their understanding and implementation of the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) to protect their information and information systems. CSD supports a major intelligence community and national security community initiative to build a unified framework for information security across the federal government. This initiative is expected to result in greater standardization and more consistent and cost-effective security for all federal information systems.
As of October 1, 2015 the Computer Security Division was split into 2 divisions: (1) Computer Security and (2) Applied Cybersecurity. Both divisions work closely together on numerous programs/projects.
