Takeaways From The NIST Cybersecurity Risk Management Conference
The Internet of Things and privacy continue to present challenges to businesses…
An article review.
It seems our own Dan Hadaway isn’t the only one making predictions about upcoming trends this time of year! NIST recently concluded their Cybersecurity Risk Management Conference and an article submitted to us by Wes Pollard details some of their thoughts about what lies ahead in security.
Among the top trends discussed at the conference was the rise of Industrial Internet of Things devices, which could present supply chain security issues as well as new entry points into a company’s network. Also of note was the need for a new privacy framework as companies increasingly rely on things like social media and smartphone applications to connect with consumers.
Finally NIST recognized the continuing problem of metrics, or ways of getting the right information to the right people. As we face a growing number of network devices, the process of filtering out the electronic “noise” and focusing on what matters will likely remain an evolving process.
