IR 8011 Series Banner

NIST has released Cybersecurity White Paper (CSWP) 30, Automation Support for Control Assessments – Project Update and Vision, which describes planned updates to the NIST Interagency Report (IR) 8011 series. These updates to IR 8011’s methodology, language, and guidance will align with revisions to SP 800-53, SP 800-53A, and SP 800-53B and will be applied to existing (IR 8011 Volumes 1–4) and upcoming volumes. CSWP 30 also shares the vision for the IR 8011 project, as well as a development and maintenance roadmap.

Existing IR 8011 volumes can be downloaded at the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) project site (select the project’s Publications page link). Individuals and organizations who may be interested in participating in a planned IR 8011 Community of Interest — especially those who are involved with the development of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions — are welcome to inform the IR 8011 team at Questions about IR 8011 can be sent to the same address.
