Ron Ross, FISMA Implementation Project Leader, NIST

If recent events on the cybersecurity front have scared the heck out of you, well, good. There's a lot you can do. How about start by reading the latest version of the government's premier publications on how to assess whether your security and privacy controls are adequate for today's hacker-plagued world? Dr. Ron Ross, FISMA Implementation Project and Joint Task Force Leader at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss what's in the newest revision of Special Publication 800-53-A.

Inside the Reporter's Notebook: Cyber bills abound; OFPP and reverse auctions; DoJ's API release

In this week's "Inside the Reporter's Notebook," the passage of five cybersecurity bills by Congress in the past week signals a long-coming and much needed change to how agencies defend their computer networks; an interesting bid protest decision flew under the radar that signals yet another challenge to FedBid, the reverse auction contractor and the Justice Department's first foray into the open data world with the launch of two APIs is noteworthy, but the underlying reason why DoJ could release the software code is really the story here.

Joshua Kneifel, Research Economist, NIST

When architects and engineers design buildings, they have to meet local building codes. But, simply meeting those codes won't ensure you have the most efficient design for the long haul. Joshua Kneifel is a research economist in the engineering laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, he told Federal News Radio's Lauren Larson about a new tool NIST engineers developed that lets builders measure the economic and environmental impacts of everything from the floor to the roof.

NIST draft document solicits cloud users' input

The National Institute of Standards and Technology needs your help with its guide to user experiences on cloud systems. NIST has a draft document out to explain what users expect from a cloud-based network, which should be a foundation piece for your agency's cloud computing plans. The framework NIST is suggesting has 5 main attributes to a cloud's user experience and 21 examples of what those involve. They're meant to serve as a guide to explain what most people expect when they try to use a cloud system. It's going to be part of the next volume of the agency's Cloud Computing Technology Roadmap, the third installment of that particular series. NIST expects that roadmap to come out in the next six months.

Ron Ross, FISMA Implementation Project Leader, NIST

Non-federal organizations and contractors may have sensitive federal information on their computers, but there are no consistent rules on how to keep that information secure. The treatment of Controlled Unclassified Information is the focus of a new set of recommendations. Ron Ross is a National Institute of Standards and Technology fellow. He is the lead author of the new guide, and joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain more.
