DeWalt spoke about the preliminary cybersecurity framework developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology on Dec. 5 from noon to 2 p.m. ET, FireEye said Thursday.

DeWalt also discussed the company’s findings using advanced tactics and techniques about cyber threats.

Some of the methodologies used in the research are zero-day exploits and never-seen before malware to target companies that handle the grid.
