To help organizations better understand the merits of the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework, Guidance Software is hosting a two-part webinar, “Implementing the Detect Function in the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.” Senior Information Technology Advisor Adam Sedgewick of NIST will be the featured presenter. The webinar will also feature a presentation by Alfred Chung, EnCase Analytics product manager for Guidance Software.
Recognizing the potentially dire consequences of a successful cyberattack on the nation’s critical infrastructure, President Obama mandated in an Executive Order that NIST lead an effort to develop a guideline for security resulting in the Cybersecurity Framework. Published in February 2014, the effort was led by Sedgewick, and included input from both government and the private sector. The result is a voluntary framework--based on existing standards, guidelines, and practices--for reducing cyber risks to critical infrastructure.
Part one of the webinar will be held on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific time and will cover the Framework’s five functions for implementation as well as how to use EnCase Analytics to simplify the establishment of a best-practices cybersecurity approach that meets the Framework’s requirements for the Detect function. Prospective attendees can register here or at www.guidancesoftware.com.
Part two, “Identifying, Protecting and Detecting with EnCase Technology,” will be held on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific time and will explain the Framework’s Respond function along with ways in which EnCase Cybersecurity can improve incident response accordingly.
