The Baldrige Performance Excellence Program has a strategic opportunity to leverage our core competencies and capabilities to help address a critical national need-- promoting and facilitating excellence in cybersecurity. Some reviewing this information may be unfamiliar with Baldrige, while others know the impact of Baldrige and how through the adoption of the concepts and principles found in the Baldrige Excellence Framework many thousands of organizations have dramatically improved their operations and results, including product and service quality, financial outcomes, workforce and customer engagement, and organizational alignment.
Recently, the Baldrige Program has teamed up with NIST's Applied Cybersecurity Division, responsible for the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, to develop a self-assessment tool integrating Baldrige concepts and those of the Cybersecurity Framework. With the help of Tony Scott, Former U.S. Chief Information Officer and with input from numerous industry representatives, we are making great progress and expect to have a version available for public review and input later this summer. It is our hope that you will be willing to use the tool and provide us feedback on use of the tool in your own organizations. We welcome your input and we want to understand its pros, cons, and issues through your use and insights as we move forward.
In addition, we invite you to learn more about the program's cybersecurity opportunity by reviewing this website and staying tuned to future postings about our progress. To learn more about Baldrige, sign up to receive email updates below through Connect with Us.
