NIST Seeks Comments on Current Draft for IoT Guide

The National Institute of Standards and Technology is sourcing for comments to formulate a publication that would inform agencies and organizations on the cybersecurity risks linked with Internet-of-Things devices.

With "Considerations for Managing Internet-of-Things Cybersecurity and Privacy Risks," NIST intends to increase awareness on the effects of IoT devices on privacy and cybersecurity, the agency said Monday.

NIST is calling for the public to comment on Draft NISTIR 8228 to identify needed changes.

Responses to the sourcing are due on Oct. 24.
