Obama administration officials have for months been championing at conferences around the United States a cybersecurity framework to protect critical infrastructure. Now they’re taking the promotional tour overseas.

In recent weeks the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the agency that helped develop the framework between government and critical infrastructure firms, has sent delegations to places as far-flung as Tel Aviv and Tokyo, carrying a message of how governments and commercial sectors can collaborate to respond to cyber threats.

“We view the framework … as a potential model for furthering international dialogue” on cybersecurity issues, said Kevin Stine, manager of NIST’s Security Outreach and Integration Group.

NIST’s recent Asia jaunt ran from May 15 to May 21 and included meetings with Japanese and Korean government agencies responsible for cybersecurity. “The main piece that we wanted to showcase is really the process by which it was developed,” Stine said.

NIST brought with it member companies and representatives of the Information Technology Industry Council, an association of big tech firms such as Google and Apple. In a letter to White House cybersecurity adviser Michael Daniel, ITI said the trip helped showcase the cybersecurity “framework as an example of an effective policy … reflecting global standards and industry-driven practices.”
