Cisco will sponsor a cybersecurity workshop on April 2 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront in Maryland in conjunction with the National Institute of Standards and Technology‘s Baldrige Quest for Excellence Conference.
NIST said Thursday the Baldrige Cybersecurity Workshop aims to provide organizations guidelines on evaluating their own cybersecurity programs using the Baldrige Cybersecurity Excellence Builder as part of risk management efforts.
BCEB is a voluntary self-assessment tool based on NIST’s Cybersecurity Framework and the Baldrige Excellence Framework that the agency’s compiles under the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program.
NIST said it will release BCEB later this month and distribute the tool at the cybersecurity workshop.
Cisco and the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives sponsor BCEB.
The Quest conference will also include a panel discussion on the use of BCEB and the impact of cybersecurity risk management on organizations, NIST added.
