The National Institute of Standards and Technology has released a draft of its Guide to Cyber Threat Information Sharing to facilitate interagency collaboration in responses to cyber attacks, GCN reported Friday.
NIST wants the guidance to help limit the effect of future attacks by enabling active sharing of threat intelligence and coordination of incident response efforts, the report said.
GCN reports that the draft Special Publication 800-150 is an extension of the Computer Security Incident Handling Guide (SP 800-61) and provides details on interoperability formats and protocols, information-sharing and incident-handling practices.
NIST included 30 recommendations in SP 800-150, such as to address mature cybersecurity systems with core and advanced cyber capabilities among all participants in the information-sharing initiative, the report said.
The agency will accept comments on the draft guidance through Nov. 28.
