Building On A Solid Cybersecurity Framework

With stories of cyberattacks making the news almost daily, it has become more important than ever to protect the critical infrastructure supporting private industry. That's the goal behind a cybersecurity framework mandated by President Obama, developed by the National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST), and now being implemented by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). In this edition of "AFCEA Answers," we'll get insights into the progress on the framework from Bobbie Stempfley, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Cybersecurity Strategy and Emergency Communications with DHS's National Protections and Programs Directorate. Stempfley will outline the importance of the voluntary nature of the framework, explain the need for highly trained cybersecurity professionals, and discuss how DHS works with other federal agencies and key public and private stakeholders.
