An Introduction to the NIST Cyber-Physical Framework

Tuesday, June 5th
As physical security sprints faster and faster toward becoming indistinguishable from the larger internet of things (IoT), it is important to recognize how traditional physical security will interact securely as part of a system of smart application domains such as smart buildings, smart cities and smart grids. The forthcoming NIST Cyber-Physical Systems Framework, scheduled for release in May 2018, further expands upon the current NIST Cybersecurity Framework to focus on the nexus of the cyber and physical worlds. Get a first look at the revised framework and the tools needed to apply it to projects.
