NIST Seeks Input on Fortifying Managed Service Providers’ Security Procedures

The National Institute of Standards and Technology is looking for input on ways to improve the security of managed service providers used by small and medium-sized businesses.

NIST’s National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence said in a press release that the organization intends to develop a cybersecurity reference model for MSPs to ensure the security of information technology infrastructure from threats like ransomware.

The standards-based and modular NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide may cover areas like architectural model definition, security control mapping, logical design and test and evaluation.

Interested parties may submit feedback on the Improving Cybersecurity of Managed Service Providers project through Nov. 8.
