Federal Computer Security Program Managers' Forum


The Forum is an informal group sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to promote the sharing of information system security information among federal agencies. The Forum maintains an extensive e-mail list, holds multiple monthly meetings and an annual 2-day "offsite" to discuss current issues and items of interest to those responsible for protecting non-national security systems. Ms. Victoria Pillitteri and Ms. Jody Jacobs of NIST serve as the Co-Chairs of the Forum. NIST also serves as the secretariat of the Forum, providing necessary administrative and logistical support.


For more information regarding the Federal Computer Security Program Managers' Forum, please visit the Computer Security Resource Center (CSRC).
