    Lots of “good” reading 457 pages worth!

    From Nextgov:

    The National Institute of Standards and Technology has rewritten federal cybersecurity standards for the first time in nearly a decade to address evolving smartphone vulnerabilities and foreign manipulation of the supply chain, among other new threats.

    The 457-page government computer security bible, officially called “SP (Special Publication) 800-53,” has not undergone a major update since its inception in 2005. That was long before the rise of advanced persistent threats — infiltrations that play off human failings to linger in systems until finding sensitive data.

    Agencies are not required to follow all the specifications, but rather choose among the protections that suit their operational environments, such as space in the case of NASA.
