The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s cybersecurity hub has launched a new program to help companies in the financial services sector consolidate their information technology assets, Fedscoop reported Tuesday.
Colby Hochmuth writes the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence is seeking vendors to develop a standard system to integrate IT security, asset management and hardware and software tools for financial services firms.
The NCCoE is an alliance between NIST, the state of Maryland and Maryland’s Montgomery County.
NCCoE intends to help organizations accelerate response efforts for cyberattacks and threats by using that system, as well as to answer queries from regulators, according to the report.
The center also wants vendors to demonstrate how they would build a model for companies to integrate their existing IT systems into a single management platform, FedScoop reports.
