Update on Cybersecurity Framework Hearing

The House Homeland Security Committee’s Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Security Technologies has updated the information on their hearing tomorrow on "Oversight of Executive Order 13636 and Development of the Cybersecurity Framework". They have added a witness list which includes, as I predicted (though it didn’t take any great skill) it includes a representative from NIST and NPPD.

The witness list includes:

• Dr. Eric A. Fisher, Congressional Research Service;
• Mr. Robert Kolasky, Implementation Task Force, National Protection and Programs, DHS; and
• Dr. Charles H. Romine, Information Technology Laboratory, NIST

I was kind of hoping to see testimony posted to the site, but it isn’t there yet. I don’t expect any great revelations, but it may be an interesting hearing. It will be particularly interesting to hear what the CRS has to say about the Cybersecurity Framework as the other two witnesses are expected to be chearleaders.
