The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published a Request For Information (RFI) on recommendations to improve cybersecurity in the public and private sectors on Tuesday. NIST’s Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity “will make detailed recommendations to strengthen cybersecurity in both the public and private sectors while protecting privacy, ensuring public safety and economic and national security, fostering discovery and development of new technical solutions, and bolstering partnerships between Federal, State and local government and the private sector in the development, promotion, and use of cybersecurity technologies, policies, and best practices.”
Cyber insurance is one of the areas of particular interest, and NIST wants information on “current and future challenges, promising and innovative approaches to address those challenges, recommendations, and references to inform the work of the Commission.”
Online submissions in electronic form may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please submit comments only and include your name, organization’s name (if any) and cite “Input to the Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity.”
The deadline to comment is Sept. 9, 2016 by 5:00 p.m. EST. All comments received in response to this RFI will be posted at http://www.nist.gov/cybercommission.
