In February 2013, President Obama signed Executive Order 13636: Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, which instructed the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) to develop a Cybersecurity Framework with the goal of increasing the overall resilience of U.S. critical infrastructure cybersecurity. The CSO Roundtable hosted a webinar on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, the C³ Voluntary Program, and the services being offered to support cyber resilience and Framework adoption. The webinar featured Jenny Menna, Director of the Stakeholder Engagement and Cyber Infrastructure Resilience Division of DHS, and Bob Kolasky, Senior Advisor to the Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection at DHS.
