The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released finalized guidance based on its Cybersecurity Framework (CSF). The release of this guidance satisfies Executive Order 13905 on securely using position, navigation, and timing (PNT) services such as the Global Positioning System (GPS). PNT services like the GPS are used by smartphone-based navigation apps and split-second timing technologies that enable stock trading and power grid control. The cybersecurity risks faced by PNT services must be mitigated as these services are essential for national and economic security. This article continues to discuss NIST's finalization of cybersecurity guidance for PNT systems, the importance of bolstering security for PNT services, and how the complete profile will help users apply NIST's CSF to such systems.
