The Virtual CISO Podcast

If your organization is part of the US defense industrial base or otherwise needs to apply NIST guidance, there is no better resource than Dr. Ross to explain how to leverage NIST publications to your best advantage.

Busy professionals often tackle challenges head-on and rarely take time to explore the “why” at the heart of it all. But sometimes hearing an expert break a complex problem down into relevant, relatable chunks can simplify things considerably.

To sort out today’s myriad of cybersecurity and data privacy guidance—from the DoD’s CMMC to NIST 800-171 to ISO 27001 and much more—we had the honor of speaking with Ron Ross, PhD on the latest of The Virtual CISO Podcast from Pivot Point Security. Dr. Ross is a Fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and among our government’s top cybersecurity experts. He leads the development of NIST security and privacy standards and has received industry accolades far too numerous to list. Hosting the podcast and asking all the right questions as only a “framework fanboy” could is Pivot Point Security’s CISO and Managing Partner, John Verry.

Topics that John and Dr. Ross cover include:

  • How the battlefield medicine concept of triage informs the foundation of NIST security guidelines
  • How ISO 27001 and NIST 800-53 relate and map to one another
  • Rationalizing the NIST 800-53 and NCSF frameworks to achieve “dual compliance”
  • NIST’s evolving privacy guidance and how it can help break down “silos of risk”
  • How supply chain management accountability really works across NIST 800-171, CMMC and the DFARS in your specific federal contract

If your organization is part of the US defense industrial base or otherwise needs to apply NIST guidance, there is no better resource than Dr. Ross to explain how to leverage NIST publications to your best advantage.
