Neustar CEO Commits to Supporting the NIST Cybersecurity Framework
Washington, D.C., February 13, 2015 – On the occasion of the White House Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection, and President Obama’s signing of an Executive Order Promoting Private Sector Cybersecurity Information Sharing, Neustar today commends the President for his focus on the growing cyber threat.
The Cybersecurity Framework was released by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on February 12, 2014, and leverages industry-led standards while creating effective, practical, and flexible best practices.
“Neustar commends the President for his focus on cybersecurity preparedness and his Administration’s commitment to bolstering cybersecurity across both private and public sectors,” said Neustar’s CEO and President Lisa Hook. “Neustar supports the President’s cyber initiatives and has adopted the NIST Cybersecurity Framework for its own security and risk management practices.”
“We commend NIST for developing the Framework with significant public-private collaboration, and the resulting applicability of the Framework to a wider range of companies and industries. Today’s cyber threats are constantly growing, often faster than the defenses. The threats are widespread, highly sophisticated, and evolving at an unprecedented rate. Companies must be able to adapt quickly in order to ensure cybersecurity preparedness. Neustar is committed to supporting the Framework in its own risk management policies,” said Hook.
