Integrating Cybersecurity and Enterprise Risk Management (ERM): Draft NISTIR 8286 Available for Comment
March 19, 2020

All enterprises should ensure cybersecurity risk gets the appropriate attention within their enterprise risk management (ERM) programs, which address all types of risk. Individual organizations within an enterprise can improve the cybersecurity risk information they provide as inputs to their enterprise's ERM processes. By doing so, enterprises and their component organizations can better identify, assess, and manage their cybersecurity risks in the context of their broader mission and business objectives.
 
NIST is releasing Draft NISTIR 8286, Integrating Cybersecurity and Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), for public comment. This report promotes greater understanding of the relationship between cybersecurity risk management and ERM, and the benefits of integrating those approaches.

The public comment period closes on April 20, 2020. See the publication details for a copy of the draft and instructions for submitting comments.
