Title: NIST's Role in Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity: Public/Private Teamwork
Published: June 02, 2014
Abstract: National security depends on the reliable functioning of critical infrastructures. Security mechanisms and controls for critical infrastructure protection aren‰t useful unless adopted, so NIST seeks, while fostering creation of effective cybersecurity technologies, to also stimulate markets for technical solutions and understanding of how to effectively employ those solutions. NIST, through its Cybersecurity Framework and National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence programs, is working closely with the private sector to stimulate adoption of useable and affordable mechanisms that address private sector-recognized problems using private sector-developed products.
