The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) issued a request for information to help it develop a framework to reduce cyber risks to critical infrastructure. The framework will consist of standards, methodologies, procedures and processes that align policy, business and technological approaches to address cyber risks.

The institute said it is looking for current adoption rates and related information for particular standards, guidelines, best practices and frameworks to determine applicability throughout the critical infrastructure sectors. The request in the Feb. 26 Federal Register asks stakeholders to submit ideas, based on their experience and mission/business needs, to assist in prioritizing the work of the framework, as well as highlighting relevant performance needs of their respective sectors. 

Comments are due by April 8.
