A year after President Obama signed Executive Order 13636, which called for, inter alia, voluntary industry standards for addressing cyber risks, the Administration has published the final version of its inaugural Cybersecurity Framework. The Framework does not actually create “standards” in the normal sense of that word; rather, it creates a standardized approach for companies to describe, identify, address, and communicate their cybersecurity measures and risks. Now it’s up to the Administration to convince companies to adopt the Framework. This may prove to be a more challenging task than creating it.
