NIST Fortifies Cybersecurity Framework


Last summer, in our “Malware Manual” series, we introduced readers to the Cybersecurity Framework developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). As described by NIST:
“This voluntary Framework consists of standards, guidelines, and best practices to manage cybersecurity-related risk. The Cybersecurity Framework’s prioritized, flexible, and cost-effective approach helps to promote the protection and resilience of critical infrastructure and other sectors important to the economy and national security.”
We believe in the NIST cybersecurity approach for organizations of all shapes and sizes across the full spectrum of industries. Moreover, we often advocate for the Framework through this blog. And in this spirit, we want to share information about last month’s updates to the Framework that we gleaned from an article in GCN. In short, after collecting feedback through a 2-year process of public calls for comment, soliciting questions from users and several workshops, NIST made these improvements with Version 1.1:
  • Adding a new category for managing supply chain risk.
  • Including in the supply chain category an assessment process for commercial off-the-shelf IT products and services.
  • Refining language in several places – e.g., clarifying the meaning of “compliance” for various stakeholders in an organization.
  • Creating a new section about self-assessment of cybersecurity risk.
  • Changing the “access control” category to better account for authentication, authorization and identity proofing.
This latest version of the Framework is fully compatible with the initial issue, which is consistent with NIST’s mission to provide a living document where changes can be made as cyber environments and risks shift. “We didn’t want to change the framework substantially, so the two frameworks could work with each other,” NIST Cybersecurity Framework Program Manager Matt Barrett said during an April webinar covering the update. For our part in supporting this mission, we designed our 6-part Malware Manual series to align with NIST’s five tenets for holistically managing cybersecurity:
Of course, aligning with the NIST framework alone does not guarantee a cybersecure organization. Implementing specific services, user education and best practices around cybersecurity make the difference. And our TeamLogic IT Managed Services Providers (MSPs) are ready to help you along the way.

Woodland Mall to Host ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Actor and Bestselling Author Keegan Allen for June 23 Book Signing
Grand Rapids, Michigan, May 31, 2018 – Keegan Allen, who is known for his role on “Pretty Little Liars” will make an appearance at Woodland Mall on June 23 for a signing of his book, “HOLLYWOOD: Photos and Stories from Foreverland.” 
During the event, which will take place in Center Court from noon to 3 p.m., Allen will also speak about the book and answer questions. Allen played Toby Cavanaugh on the Freeform television show, which ended with its eighth season in June 2017. 
The book will be available for sale at Barnes & Noble at Woodland Mall. 
A Los Angeles native, Allen grew up immersed in a world that millions visit and many imagine: Hollywood. His new book provides a photographic tour of the iconic home of the film industry, including intimate captions, lyrics and other writing. 
Featuring more than 250 emotionally charged photographs, the book shares different sides of the city itself and the industries it is known for. Photos of red carpets and the Chateau Marmont at twilight illustrate its beauty and glamour, while other images illuminate the darker side of dreams unrealized in the faces, hands, eyes and footsteps of those who live on the fringe of celebrity. 
Booklist’s review of “HOLLYWOOD” described Allen’s vision of the city as “that of a romantic: dusk, splashing around in a fountain with a girl he's just met at the bus stop, and a view of the city's glowing skyline as seen from the vantage of its iconic sign." 
Allen is an actor, photographer and musician. In addition to seven years on the hit series “Pretty Little Liars,” he has been in films directed by James Franco and Gia Coppola. His first book, “,” was a national bestseller. In 2017, he released his first single, “Million Miles Away.”
