NIST updates guidance for cyber response
Thursday - 8/9/2012, 8:00am EDT
The National Institute of Standards and Technology revised special publication 800-61, addressing new threats and potential attacks.
The Federal Information Security Management Act, or FISMA, requires agencies to have incident response capabilities. The guidance gives agencies seven specific steps to have in place before the the next cyber incident happens. Among the most important steps is having an incident response team in place, a policy to guide the team's actions and a pre-determined approach to communicating the incident and response internally and externally.
