As an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is responsible for measurement science, standards, and technology in a way that promotes safety and collaboration for industry and government alike. NIST has a significant influence on worldwide standards and provides a framework cyber security professional can use to analyse and strengthen their ability to identify, detect, and respond to cyberattacks. In this course, explore the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) as you learn to apply it to your organization, large and small, using a matrix that incorporates all of the popular technical standards. The risks that come with cybersecurity can be overwhelming to many organizations. Building out a robust cybersecurity program is often complicated and difficult to conceptualize for any organization, regardless of size. It is this unwieldiness that makes frameworks so attractive for information security leaders and practitioners. Frameworks are not a new concept to cybersecurity professionals, and the benefits are immense – nor do they need to be complicated to be effective. Here we’ll dive into the benefits of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) and why it should be a cornerstone for your cybersecurity program.
