  • identify and prioritize the standards required by the owners and operators of critical infrastructure and identify the gaps between existing standards and the needs of the owners and operators of critical infrastructure; and
  • make recommendations on how the gaps in standards may be addressed and develop a blueprint for the development of a security standards framework that is essential in identifying and categorizing security standards.
