Baked-in cybersecurity goodness

Experts say that one way to eliminate cybersecurity vulnerabilities is to build cyber defenses into the wide range of information technology devices that are rapidly becoming part of the "Internet of things". Baked-in cybersecurity is the goal of new draft guidelines recently proposed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. In this edition of "AFCEA Answers", Dr. Ron Ross, senior computer scientist and information security researcher with NIST, joins us to discuss SP 800-160, proposals which would mandate the design of cyber protection into the hardware and software of the next generation of IT products and services. Also, Dr. Ross discusses how SP 800-160 is part of the continuing work on the federal government's cybersecurity framework.

Ron Ross, Computer Scientist, NIST

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has launched a four-part plan to help agencies build more secure IT systems. NIST Computer Scientist Ron Ross, who guided a new publication on the issue, tells the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp that the same engineering principles that apply to bridges and buildings should apply to IT. That is, security should be built in, not added later.

Agencies experiencing a widening cybersecurity reality gap

The inconsistent way inspectors general review the security of federal networks and computers is causing uncertainty around what is working and what isn't in the federal government. A recent State Department IG management alert is a prime example of this growing disconnect.
