We have a new identity! Welcome to Cybersecurity Insights: a NIST blog!

We have changed

The NIST Cyber Team welcomes everyone to our new blog - Cybersecurity Insights: a NIST blog.

For the past few years, we have shared many milestones and updated you on countless topics on our I Think, Therefore IAM: A Digital Identities Blog while our list of subscribers grew to over 28,500! Well, we are not done sharing.  Our Cyber Team is excited to announce that we are expanding the breadth of our blog and have renamed it Cybersecurity Insights: a NIST blog

Why the change?

While identity is just as important to us as it always has been, NIST conducts extensive work in the cybersecurity and privacy arenas. That portfolio of activities is growing, as is the need for a blog that addresses these varied and ever-evolving fields. Our programs seek to advance and enable the development and application of practical, innovative security technologies and methodologies that address current and future cybersecurity and privacy challenges. 

What should we expect?

We will continue to blog about our progress and updates on NIST identity projects, but the new blog has a fresh look and an expanded focus.

Our new Cybersecurity Insights: a NIST blog will cover areas such as: Privacy Engineering, the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Small Business, Cryptography, Cybersecurity Education, the Cybersecurity Framework, the Privacy Framework, and more… and we will  provide updates from the Computer Security Resource Center,  National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) and the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) that should be of interest to current and future blog subscribers.

You help make our publications, programs, and projects the best they can be. For that, we’re continuously grateful. We look forward to sharing our cybersecurity news, insights, and progress with you with this blog–almost as much as we look forward to hearing from you!
