Identifying and Estimating Cybersecurity Risk for Enterprise Risk Management: Draft NISTIR 8286A Available for Comment
December 14, 2020

(1/13/21) The comment period has been extended through March 1, 2021.


Draft NISTIR 8286A, Identifying and Estimating Cybersecurity Risk for Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), is now available for public comment. This report provides a more in-depth discussion of the concepts introduced in NISTIR 8286, Integrating Cybersecurity and Enterprise Risk Management (ERM). It specifically highlights that cybersecurity risk management (CSRM) is an integral part of ERM—both taking its direction from ERM and informing it. The increasing frequency, creativity, and severity of cybersecurity attacks means that all enterprises should ensure that cybersecurity risk is receiving appropriate attention within their ERM programs by ensuring the CSRM program is anchored within the context of ERM. This document is intended to help individual organizations that are already familiar with NISTIR 8286.

The public comment period for this draft is open through February 1, 2021 March 1, 2021. See the publication details for a copy of the draft and instructions for submitting comments.

NOTE: A call for patent claims is included on page iii of this draft.  For additional information, see the Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) Patent Policy--Inclusion of Patents in ITL Publications.
