Cyber guru Ron Ross on policy surrounding IoT, NIST’s 2016 plans

In part two of their conversation, host Kevin Greene and guest Ron Ross, a fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, discuss federal regulations and governance around the Internet of Things — and what’s on tap in 2016 for NIST.

Ross leads the Federal Information Security Management Act Implementation Project, which includes the development of security standards and guidelines for the federal government, contractors and the U.S. critical information infrastructure. He is the principal architect of the NIST Risk Management Framework, a multi-tiered approach that provides a disciplined and structured methodology for integrating the suite of security standards and guidelines into a comprehensive enterprisewide information security program.
