NIST drops ‘federal’ from cyber controls guidance
Employees FedScoop published an article on the abolition of “federal” from the management of cybersecurity.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology excluded the formulation specific to federal legislation from its important publication on cybersecurity and confidentiality. This is one of a number of proposed changes rolled out this week after a long delay.
As a result of a long review, NIST changed the name SP-800-53 using security and confidentiality tools to federal information systems and organizations, cutting the word “federal”.
