The National Institute of Standards and Technology will increase its focus on big data and increased use of mobile devices in 2012, a NIST lab director told InformationWeek

NIST Information Technology Laboratory Director Chuck Romaine said that NIST is working to issue standards for big data technologies.

NIST helped publish a report in 2009 that discusses how to harness big data. 

Romaine said NIST is is also working to develop standards in regard to wireless network technologies. 

According to InformationWeek, NIST will also work on a strategic planning process to engage private sector and industry in determining technologies the agency should focus on in the future.

Romaine said NIST, which creates standards under the Federal Information Security Management Act, will continue to focus on cybersecurity standards as he does not see it disappearing in the foreseeable future, the report said.
