Earlier this month (in April 2015 if you are reading this post in the far distant future...) the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released NIST Draft NISTIR 8050; in which, an interesting summary appears of a technical workshop held at Stanford University in conjuction with the Presidents' Cybersecurity Summit.
Pursuant to completeing the draft cycle of the document, the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence NNCoE (a Center of Excellence and a component of NIST) has issued a Call for Comments, focusing on the content of that document. In this instance, related to your agency, company, buereau, department, country or other organizations' information and/or cybersecurity issues. I've included a link to NISTIR 8050 to assist in fulfilling the Call for Comments. Enjoy.
