NIST Guts Cybersecurity Framework Web Site

When I did my weekly check of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework web site today I was very disappointed to see that in making a wholesale change in the site format a large number of valuable information links were removed from the site. While the site history claims that the latest revision dates back to August 31st, I have a copy of the web page from last Saturday that includes the missing links.

The links from last Saturday’s version of the web site still work, though many of those pages today also show up in a revised format. The earlier (and now missing) information links include:


To make matters even worse the information provided on the newly formatted landing page is poorly written with a confusing mixture of verb tenses and a frequent lack of noun-verb agreement. I generally try not to complain about government-speak (glass houses and such), but this a truly egregious example that should not remain on the web.

Hopefully this is just a glitch in the format change process and the landing page will be done with all (or at least most) of the links being returned to the rightful place.
