The National Institute of Standards and Technology will hold a workshop on July 11 to gather stakeholder insights on cybersecurity and risk management for devices connected to the internet of things.

The Considerations for Managing IoT Cybersecurity and Privacy Risks Workshop will help NIST develop federal guidelines on the protection of connected devices and environments in relation to the NIST Special Publication 800-53 and the Cybersecurity Framework, the event agenda detailed.

Topics for discussion include the use of information technology cybersecurity controls; risk considerations, identification and management; baselines and overlays; a model proposal and botnet report roadmap.

The NIST intends to provide publications on the Cybersecurity for IoT Program and the Privacy Engineering Program to assist agencies in efforts to comply with the Federal Information Security Modernization Act.
