  • As we previously reported (Vol. XIV, Issue 8), NIST released a draft update of its Cybersecurity Framework on January 10. President Trump acknowledged the importance of the framework by signing an executive order requiring federal agencies to adhere to the NIST framework. The EO requires the heads of all civilian federal agencies to submit a report of compliance with the framework to the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of Management and Budget within 90 days of the Executive Order being published.
