Neustar has vowed to support the National Institute of Standards and Technology's cybersecurity framework by incorporating the guidelines into the company's security and risk management policies.

Lisa Hook, Neustar's CEO and president, said Friday the company lauds the NIST for developing the framework with public-private collaboration and industry-wide applicability in mind.

Hook added that Neustar also commends President Barack Obama for focusing on cybersecurity preparedness and “bolstering cybersecurity across both private and public sectors.“

“Neustar supports the president's cyber initiatives and has adopted the NIST cybersecurity framework for its own security and risk management practices,“ she said.

The NIST framework, released in February 2014, incorporates industry standards for cybersecurity best practices.
