NIST Will Reorganize IT Lab for Enhanced Cybersecurity Research

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has started reorganizing its Information Technology Laboratory, aiming to enhance NIST cybersecurity research.  After the reorganization, NIST’s chief cybersecurity adviser, Curt Barker,  (also its Computer Security Division cheif) will relocate to the IT Laboratory office, while continuing to oversee the Computer Security Division. The IT Laboratory organization chart already shows Barker in the ITL office, because he serves as the cybersecurity and privacy coordinator for the Department of Commerce, where NIST is housed.
