Founded in 1901, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is a physical sciences laboratory and a non-regulatory agency of the United States Department of Commerce. Its mission is to promote innovation and industrial competitiveness. To further these objectives, one of NIST’s areas of focus is cybersecurity.
NIST’s cybersecurity program supports its overall mission to promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards, and related technology through research and development in ways that enhance economic security and improve our quality of life. NIST has released several cybersecurity and privacy frameworks that many organizations comply with to protect their data and systems. Unlike many industry frameworks, these offerings can be used across all industries of any shape and size. Some organizations comply out of best practice while others, including federal agencies and participants in Department of Defense contracts, are required to comply.
