NIST Cyber Security Framework
The National Institute of Standards and Technology Cyber Security Framework (NIST CSF) provides a policy framework of computer security guidance for how organizations can assess and improve their ability to prevent, detect, and respond to cyber attacks. The primary objective of the NIST framework is data protection.
The Framework uses business drivers to guide cybersecurity activities and considers cyber security as part of an organization’s risk management processes. Many organizations are embracing this framework to help manage their cyber security risks.
The NIST framework uses five overarching functions to allow organisations to
customise their cybersecurity measures to best meet their goals and
unique challenges that they
face in their environments.
