Comments | NIST IR 8481, Cybersecurity for Research: Findings and Possible Paths Forward
August 31, 2023

To support implementation of the research cybersecurity effort detailed in Section 10229  of the CHIPS and Science Act, NIST is leading an initiative to disseminate and make publicly available resources to help qualifying institutions of higher education identify, assess, manage, and reduce cybersecurity risks related to conducting research.

Informed by community dialogue and an April 2023 Request for Comment, today NIST is publishing an Initial Public Draft of NIST Interagency Report (IR) 8481, Research for Cybersecurity: Findings and Possible Paths Forward

Institutions of higher education, cybersecurity and privacy professionals, researchers, and any other interested parties are invited to review the draft and provide feedback by October 31, 2023.

We appreciate your help! Feedback and comments should be sent via email to cyber4R&
