The National Institute of Standards and Technology has gathered industry participants at a workshop meant to review the proposed changes to the NIST cybersecurity framework, FedScoop reported Thursday.

Greg Otto writes that NIST held the workshop at its Gaithersburg, Maryland-based campus to discuss feedback gathered from various organizations that responded to its December 2015 request for information on best practices for using the framework.

“[There] are opportunities to make small changes, clarifications and maybe to expand some areas where it could be appropriate… versus [creating] a framework 2.0,” NIST Chief Cybersecurity Adviser Donna Dodson told FedScoop.

The RFI was also intended to gauge what parts of the framework organizations have adopted and to determine the portions that need updating, according to the report.

Boeing, AT&T, CompTIA and NASCIO were among the organizations that submitted proposals on the cybersecurity framework, FedScoop reports.
