Save the Date: NIST plans to host the Cybersecurity Risk Management Conference -- likely in Baltimore, MD -- during the week of November 4th. This event will expand on previous Framework workshops and incorporate other elements of cybersecurity risk management. Stay tuned!
Version 1.1 of the Framework was published on April 16, 2018. The document has evolved to be even more informative, useful, and inclusive for all kinds of organizations. Version 1.1 is fully compatible with Version 1.0 and remains flexible, voluntary, and cost-effective. Among other refinements and enhancements, the document provides a more comprehensive treatment of identity management and additional description of how to manage supply chain cybersecurity.
The recorded version of the April 27th webcast is available.
