Introducing a New, Informative Resource for Security Professionals

The Chief Information Security Officers Council (CISO Council) sought to produce the “CISO Handbook” – a compendium of key information and actionable templates and processes – to provide a “one stop shop” for new and emerging information security professionals to begin their upskilling into future cybersecurity executives. The Handbook is a foundational document that will help agency leadership drive transformational workforce changes in a standardized, repeatable manner and create greater collaboration and coordination across agencies to address systemic cybersecurity challenges.

Included in the publication is a section highlighting the NCCoE:

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) at NIST aids the development of effective cybersecurity policy by testing methods and techniques in a laboratory environment. In the case of the NIST SP 1800-series, the NCCoE provides practice guides to help agencies test their networks against various threats. One such publication, NIST SP 1800-11, allows agencies to test their recovery methods in the case of data integrity attacks.
