NIST Adds Smartphone, Supply Chain Guidelines to Cyber Standards

CyberStockThe National Institute of Standards and Technology has added guidelines on addressing smartphone security and foreign manipulation of supply chains to its federal cybersecurity standards, Computer Weekly reports.

Warwick Ashford writes this fourth revision of the Core Computer Security Guide: SP 800-53 was published April 30 in a move aimed to address threats that have emerged since 2005, when the guide was last revised.

The agency also included guidelines on social engineering and advanced persistent threats and recommended agencies offer incentives to suppliers for transparency in processes and security practices.

NIST also wants agencies to withhold the ultimate goals of technology from contractors to maintain supply chain integrity.
