DHS, NIST partner on ‘botnet playbook’

The Homeland Security Department and the National Institute of Standards and Technology are teaming up to create a “botnet playbook.”

The book will be an industry “code of conduct” to address the detection, notification and mitigation of botnets. And they’re seeking public input.

DHS and NIST issued an RFI asking for ideas on approaches to creating the plan.

Online Chat: Beth Killoran, deputy assistant secretary for Information Technology and chief information officer at HHS, on March 28.
