The NIST Cybersecurity Framework
The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) created the NIST Cybersecurity Framework in response to Presidential Executive Order (EO) 13636, Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity. The Framework, developed in collaboration with industry, provides guidance to organizations to better manage and reduce cybersecurity risk.
The NIST Cybersecurity Framework Core presents key cybersecurity outcomes identified by industry as helpful in managing cybersecurity risk. The Core comprises four elements: Functions, Categories, Subcategories, and Informative References. Want to learn more about the NIST Cybersecurity Framework? Watch this VIDEO.
