The NIST cybersecurity framework was created through collaboration between the private and public sector under an executive order. The goal was to ensure the reliable function of our nation’s critical infrastructure. It is a voluntary framework consisting of standards, guidelines, and best practices to manage cybersecurity-related risk.

NIST’s prioritized, flexible, and cost-effective approach helps to promote the protection and resilience of critical infrastructure and other sectors important to the economy and national security.

What it means for you

The NIST cybersecurity framework is made up of 3 components: the Core, the profiles and the implementation tiers. These components possess the specific functions and target outcomes of the security framework for a specific organization, along with how they view their ability to manage potential risks.

The NIST cybersecurity framework is meant to be a guide. Organizations will continue to have unique risks, so it should be customized by different sectors and individual organizations to best suit their risks, situations, and needs. That even goes down to how the practices in the security framework are implemented. The framework should not be implemented as a a one-size-fits-all approach for all critical infrastructure organizations.

Enter JupiterOne
