NIST Issues Revised Manuals on Cybersecurity Mgmt

NIST logo The National Institute of Standards and Technology has released new versions of two manuals on computer security, aiming to help information technology workers prevent cyber attacks.

Each document includes methods and techniques intended to protect virtual networks and information systems from suspicious programs and applications that can damage or disrupt IT infrastructure processes, NIST said Tuesday.

The Guide to Enterprise Patch Management Technologies aims to help organizations use protective features of automated system tools as a revision of the Creating a Patch and Vulnerability Management Program handbook.

NIST also aimed to help users understand and evaluate the effectiveness of IT platforms that repair application or product glitches.

The Guide to Malware Incident Prevention and Handling for Desktops and Laptops, an update of the 2005 document, is intended to provide agencies the capabilities to detect and remove malicious software from computing devices.

This new version also offers recommendations on how organizations can improve preventive measures and incident response strategies against malware attacks.
