NIST Unveils Facility for National Cybersecurity CoE; Willie May Comments

CyberStockThe National Institute of Standards and Technology has unveiled a new facility in Rockville, Maryland to house projects and operations of the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence.

Willie May, undersecretary for standards and technology at the Commerce Department and NIST director, wrote in a blog post published Monday that the new facility expands the laboratory space for NCCoE compared to its previous temporary base.

“We’re grateful to our partners, the state of Maryland and Montgomery County, Md. for co-funding with NIST the renovation of the facility to the center’s specific needs,” said May.

Intel, HP, Hytrust, RSA, Symantec and Splunk are among the private companies that pledged to supply hardware and software products to the center.

The center is a public-private partnership NIST launched in 2013 to help government and industry develop off-the-shelf commercial products intended to help address cybersecurity issues.
