Juniper's Bob Dix joins us to look at the reasons for Presidential Executive Order 13636, Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, issued in February of 2013, which led to the creation of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, released in February of 2014.

Bob will answer questions such as:

What critical infrastructure is covered by the Executive Order?   

How has the threat landscape evolved in recent years and how have adversaries changed their strategies and attack vectors to focus on critical infrastructure systems and assets?

What is the purpose of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and who will use it?  Is its application mandatory or voluntary for Federal agencies? 


How does the Framework support NIST objectives and what else can be done to fortify our national cyber defense?
