The What and Why’s of NIST Cybersecurity Framework
The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) is designed with the intent that individual businesses and other organizations use an assessment of the business risks they face to guide their use of the framework in a cost-effective way.
The Framework is typically customized based on organizations’ unique risk posture (e.g., variance in threats, vulnerabilities, and risk tolerances, and how they implement the practices in the Framework). Organizations can determine activities that are important to critical service delivery and can prioritize investments to maximize the impact of each dollar spent. Ultimately, the Framework is aimed at reducing and better managing cybersecurity risk
