Community Profiles Workshop


The NIST NCCoE is hosting a Cybersecurity Framework Community Profiles Workshop on June 20, 2024, at 2:00 P.M. ET.

Since the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) was first released in 2014, the CSF has been used by communities with shared interests in cybersecurity risk management. They developed what CSF 2.0 terms “Community Profiles” to describe the ways various organizations have used CSF Profiles to develop cybersecurity risk management guidance that applies to multiple organizations, as well as to differentiate them from Organizational Profiles that are not shared publicly. A Community Profile can be thought of as guidance for a specific community that is organized around the common taxonomy of the CSF.

During this workshop, participants will:

  1. Learn from communities that have successfully developed Community Profiles
  2. Hear what the NCCoE learned from the recent comment period on the Community Profiles Guide
  3. Share input regarding Community Profiles and influence future NIST guidance in this area
