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.

The Benefits of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

Some of the benefits of adopting the framework include:

  • Superior and unbiased cybersecurity

  • Enable long-term cybersecurity and risk management

  • Ripple effects across supply chains and vendor lists

  • Bridge the gap between technical and business side stakeholders

  • Flexibility and adaptability of the Framework

  • Built for future regulation and compliance requirements
