NIST Launches Beta Site for the Computer Security Resource Center (CSRC)

The NIST CSRC Redesign Team have been developing a new version of CSRC, and today you can access the beta release at It will be available alongside for several months as NIST continues to fix issues, implement enhanced functionality, and migrate existing content.

A completely overhauled Publications interface includes significantly more publication details, historical documents, and external publications. Other primary CSRC content—Projects, News, and Events—are redesigned to better connect related content and provide a more consistent layout. Soon, the team will be adding an interactive, regularly-updated Glossary that is based on NIST’s Glossary of Key Information Security Terms.

Cybersecurity means protecting electronic devices and electronically stored information. Cybersecurity is a component of information security and addresses protection and restoration of information technology within an organization. All organizations are different and thus require different levels or protections. Likelihood is the chance that a threat will affect a business and serves as a guide in determining what protections should be put into place.


Strategic thinking is at the heart of information security and each organization needs to meet demands of adequate security. Any company, big or small, should be capable of doing an inventory of all information technology assets and analyzing risks. For small organizations this can be as simple as understanding each asset’s confidentiality, integrity, and availability needs; rating it’s importance to the business and acceptable recovery points and time windows; and allocating resources for methodical solutions to the most important parts.
