Release of Public Draft of Guidelines on Cyber Resiliency Considerations To Be Announced at Third Billington International Cybersecurity Summit

Join Mark Kneidinger, Director, Federal Network Resilience, Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS); Charles Romine, Director, Information Technology Laboratory, NIST; and Ron Ross, Fellow, NIST, for the announcement of a highly anticipated draft publication on cyber resiliency considerations.  Following the announcement, you will hear an in-depth analysis on implementation strategies from DHS and NIST to secure high value assets and achieve cyber resiliency.

The draft guideline provides a flexible systems engineering-based framework to help organizations address the APT.  NIST Special Publication 800-160, Volume 2, Systems Security Engineering: Cyber Resiliency Considerations for the Engineering of Trustworthy Secure Systems, is the first in a series of specialty publications developed to support NIST Special Publication 800-160, Volume 1, the flagship Systems Security Engineering guideline. Volume 2 addresses cyber resiliency considerations for two important, yet distinct communities of interest:

  • Organizations conducting new development of IT component products, systems, and services; and
  • Organizations with legacy systems (installed base) currently carrying out day-to-day missions and business functions.
