Re: Reading suggestions on governance and policy creation

A history of the Cybersecurity Framework that underpins governance can be found on the US Government's NIST site and NIST has great resources for small business as well.  Having served in cybersecurity in both industry and government (to include military service) for decades, I find NIST a good source of unbiased guidance that is not driven by trying to sell a product or consulting services.  Here is the link that explins how the cybersecurity framework evolved https://www.nist.gov/cyberframework/online-learning/history-and-creation-framework

 

This link to the NIST Report for Cybersecurity Fundamentals for Small Business Owners, is a little gem that can really help with framing policy development for a small business, NIST has guides for several types of businesses. https://csrc.nist.gov/publications/detail/nistir/7621/rev-1/final 

 

This link provides a National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center’s (NCCIC) historical perspective going bak to 1963 and up to the present day:

Here is a Washington Post Article that outlines the history of Internet Security going back to its inception and up to the present day: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/security-of-the-internet/history/?noredirect=on  there are even comments to his article that are relevant as well.
