Why NIST CSF?
Compromise is now a matter of “when” and NIST’s family of special publications deliver a single umbrella of governance guidelines to help you illustrate reasonable security.
- NIST provides cyber security and privacy frameworks using to safeguard your business with reasonable security and privacy by applying suggested controls and maturity models like NIST.IR 7621r1, NIST CSF r1.1, NIST 800-171r2, and NIST 800-53r4.
- The NIST Cyber Security Framework (NIST CSF) coupled with the new NIST Privacy Framework introduces an opportunity to help businesses keep privacy data sacred while suggesting foundations that improve cyber mindset, harden overall cyber posture, and limit whack-a-mole reactive spending to comply with regulations.
- Finally, 80% of cyber security professionals are gearing up for NIST adoption in anticipation of expected regulations stimulated by new consumer privacy laws.
Advantage of NIST with Omnistruct
Adopting any framework can be complicated. Using NIST offers a cyber compliance “easy button” in governance and can provide a foundation to illustrate reasonableness in audits, policies, 3rd-party checklists, and IT actions when they are planned and tracked with milestones. Frameworks like NIST ultimately reduce the risk of fines, show that executives are involved in cyber risk, and minimize risk.
More Details on NIST CSF
Simply Stated – Like GAAP is to Accounting, NIST is to Cyber Security in the United States.
The National Institute of Standards & Technology Cyber Security Framework (“NIST CSF”), is the leading set of bipartisan executive orders initiated by the US presidential administration in 2013 and mandated for federal agencies by the presidential administration in 2017. Designed collaboratively between NIST and leading private sector technology companies, the NIST CSF mission was to draft a framework of uniform standards, guidelines, and documented publications for business cybersecurity risk management that can be tracked and measured in five simple to remember categories.
Organize your overall cyber security posture with a US guideline designed to keep US companies speaking the same cyber language so you can collaboratively fight cyber crime and protect privacy data!
