NIST’s Cybersecurity for the Internet of Things (IoT) program supports the development and application of standards, guidelines, and related tools to improve the cybersecurity of connected devices and the environments in which they are deployed. By collaborating with stakeholders across government, industry, international bodies, and academia, the program aims to cultivate trust and foster an environment that enables innovation on a global scale.
The Final Public Draft of NIST SP 800-53 Revision 5: Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations was released on March 16. NIST SP 800-53 presents a proactive and systemic approach to developing comprehensive safeguarding measures for all types of computing platforms, including general purpose computing systems, cyber-physical systems, cloud and mobile systems, industrial/process control systems, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. NIST seeks comment on this draft through May 15, 2020.

This Workshop will gather feedback on NIST’s approach to the IoT Cybersecurity Baseline as well as discuss current status and future directions of this work.
The rapid proliferation of internet-connected devices and rise of the IoT come with great anticipation. These newly connected devices bring the promise of enhanced business efficiencies and increased customer satisfaction.
IoT devices could include wearable fitness trackers, “smart” televisions, wireless infusion pumps, and cars—among many others. Internet-connected devices generally sense, collect, process, and transmit a wide array of data, ranging from consumer personally identifiable information to proprietary company data to infrastructure data used to make critical real-time decisions or to effect a change in the physical world.
Just as there are a variety of new uses, the IoT ecosystem’s nature brings new security considerations. These considerations include—but are not limited to—constrained power and processing; the ability to manage, update, and patch devices at scale; and a diverse set of new applications across consumer and industrial sectors.
Fostering cybersecurity for devices and data in the IoT ecosystem, across industry sectors and at scale
Cultivate trust in the IoT and foster an environment that enables innovation on a global scale through standards, guidance, and related tools
The Cybersecurity for IoT program supports and builds off existing initiatives at NIST.
NIST wants to hear from you! The Cybersecurity for IoT program is looking for feedback and potential collaborators.
