Abstract:   Victoria Yan Pillitteri  will present on Automation with controls and NIST 800-171 and the Future of NIST SP 800-53. NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-53, Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations, provides a comprehensive set of countermeasures to protect systems and organizations and manage cybersecurity, privacy, and cyber supply chain risk. Each revision of SP 800-53 is the most downloaded publication from the NIST Computer Security Resource Center. SP 800-53 is used by organizations small and large, public and private, and across all sectors of the U.S and international economy. As organizations leverage more and more automation to make informed cybersecurity and privacy risk management and operational decisions, it is imperative that NIST also integrates automation into the development and release of updates to the security and privacy controls. NIST now offers the SP 800-53 controls in multiple formats, from PDFs /spreadsheets to various machine-readable formats, and also has a new tool to keep the control up-to-date and allow stakeholders to submit their ideas and feedback any time, from anywhere. Learn more about NIST’s new resources – the SP 800-53 Controls Release Search and SP 800-53 Public Comment Tool – and what’s in store for future revisions of the security and privacy controls.
