On February 24, the National Cybersecurity Institute (NCI) hosted a webinar on “Implementing the Cybersecurity Framework”.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure on February 12, 2014. This document was developed in response to the President’s Executive Order 13636 “Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.” The framework allows all organizations to apply cybersecurity principles and practices to improve their security. The framework is a risk based approach to cybersecurity and is composed of three parts. The parts are the framework core, implementation tiers, and profiles. The cybersecurity framework provides a method for identifying the current state of cybersecurity, a target state, and action plan for achieving the target state.
This webinar looked at the cybersecurity framework and discussed how its implementation improves an organization’s cybersecurity.
The webinar was presented by Dr. James Angle. Dr. Angle has over 20 years of experience in multiple areas of IT culminating as the Deputy CIO for an army hospital. He has more than 15 years of information security experience in both government service and the private sector. He is currently a Regional Information Security Officer for Trinity Health. In this capacity, he manages the information security and HIPAA security compliance for 17 hospitals and 83 clinics. Dr. Angle is also a fellow at the National Cybersecurity Institute.
