No date for next NIST guidance
The original version of this column asserted that Revision 5 was "expected" to be published in April 2015. We received the following request for a correction from NIST public affairs:
"In an InformationWeek commentary by Vincent Berk on June 16, 2014, it was reported incorrectly that NIST plans to update its security and privacy controls catalog, Special Publication 800-53, from Revision 4 to Revision 5. NIST has not announced any plans to update that publication or proposed any date for such an update."
I'm not sure of the source of confusion but meanwhile have revised the text to make clear that Mr. Berk's assertion is an opinion.
