Just over a year ago, President Barack Obama signed an Executive Order (EO) calling for increased cybersecurity for the critical infrastructure of the United States. On the anniversary of this EO’s release, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) issued the final version of its Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (Framework) and a companion NIST Roadmap for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (Roadmap). The Framework and Roadmap are the result of a 12-month development process that included the release of multiple versions for public comment and working sessions with the private sector and security stakeholders.
