NIST Issues Cyber Threat Recovery Guide

cyberThe National Institute of Standards and Technology has released a guide the agency developed to help organizations resume their normal operations after a cybersecurity incident.

NIST said in the guide issued June 6 that the document aims to assist government agencies in efforts to incorporate cyber recovery processes and procedures into their enterprise risk management plan.

After a 2015 review over cybersecurity systems and plans of federal agencies, the government discovered what NIST called “inconsistencies in cyber event response capabilities among federal agencies.”

“Although there are existing federal policies, standards and guidelines on cyber event handling, none of them focuses solely on improving security recovery capabilities, nor is the fundamental information captured in a single document,” NIST said.

NIST wants agencies to use the guide in their work to develop recovery plans in form of customized playbooks.
