Announcement

This project from the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) will detail methods and potential tool sets that can detect, mitigate, and contain data integrity events in the components of an enterprise network. It will also identify tools and strategies to aid in a security team’s response to such an event. The project will result in a freely available NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide, documenting an example solution that demonstrates how to perform the following actions:

  • monitor integrity;
  • logging and data correlation;
  • manage vulnerabilities; and
  • report unauthorized or malicious activity.
