Insight into the evolving cybersecurity regulatory landscape and recommendations for compliance
WASHINGTON, D.C., May 12, 2016 – For companies concerned about growing compliance requirements related to cybersecurity, The Center for Responsible Enterprise And Trade (CREATe.org) today releases a whitepaper, “Cyber Risk: Navigating the Rising Tide of Cybersecurity Regulation.”
The whitepaper provides an overview of the ongoing wave of legislation, government regulation, procurement requirements, and court-imposed developments across the globe, following the pervasive increase in hacking and cybersecurity incidents. The whitepaper also explores new voluntary approaches and best practices collaboratively developed by governments and the private sector, designed to achieve stronger cybersecurity protections and to safeguard confidential information from loss and theft. Specifically reviewed is the development and utilization of the voluntary Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (the “NIST Framework”), developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (“NIST”) unit of the U.S. Department of Commerce, as are other information-protection standards.
“In light of the current risk landscape, it is vital for companies and governments to take a broad risk-assessment and management-systems approach as they work to improve their cybersecurity programs,” stated Pamela Passman, President and CEO of the Center for Responsible Enterprise And Trade (CREATe.org). ”Use of common frameworks provides the opportunity to bring some cohesion to the disparate cybersecurity efforts and requirements that have been developing to date.”
This whitepaper builds on CREATe’s other resources for information security and compliance. This includes the eBook Safeguarding Trade Secrets and Mitigating Threats; and whitepapers including: “Reasonable Steps to Protect Trade Secrets: Leading Practices in an Evolving Legal Landscape,” and “Protecting Intellectual Property through Enterprise Risk Management.”
