What is the NIST Cybersecurity Framework?

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework provides a framework, based on existing standards, guidelines and practices for private sector organizations in the United States to better manage and reduce cybersecurity risk. In addition to helping organizations prevent, detect and respond to cyber threats and cyber attacks, it was designed to improve cybersecurity and risk management communications among internal and external stakeholders. The framework is increasingly adopted as best practice, with 30% of U.S.


How to Map PCI DSS to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

Organizations face an increasing number of compliance metrics. Risk management is of paramount importance and is feeding the need for governance. Terms like PCI DSS and NIST CSF are two frameworks that help enhance data security and manage risk. Often, it is the confusion on where businesses need to start that prevents them from taking action at all. It is important first to understand what PCI and NIST do, how they are related to each other, and how they are different to prevent analysis paralysis.


What Is NIST's Cybersecurity Framework Manufacturing Profile?

Executive Order 13636, “Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity,” directed the development of the voluntary Cybersecurity Framework that provides a prioritized, flexible, repeatable, performance-based and cost-effective approach to manage cybersecurity risk for those processes, information and systems directly involved in the delivery of critical infrastructure services.


What NIST recommends for cybersecurity and applications

Cybersecurity is a growing concern for businesses of all sizes and industries—and for good reason. As cybersecurity threats and attacks increase each year and more businesses move into software, the trend isn’t likely to subside any time soon. Luckily, there are NIST recommendations to help protect your organization against cyber threats.


The NIST cybersecurity framework (CSF) and what it can do for you

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) has only been around for four years and while developed for critical infrastructure, resulting from Executive Order 13636, it has been widely adopted across both private and public sectors and organizational sizes. It is used inside of the US government, with 20 states using it (at last count).
