Manage and reduce cybersecurity risk with NIST CSF compliance
Secureframe helps organizations that work with the U.S. federal government to understand compliance requirements, manage controls, streamline workflows and automate tasks and evidence collection to get NIST CSF compliant quickly and easily.
NIST CSF: Manage and mitigate IT infrastructure risk
The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF) helps organizations understand risk and improve their cybersecurity programs. Created by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology, NIST CSF provides a flexible framework that any organization can use to create and maintain a robust information security program. NIST CSF compliance is required for any organization that works with the US federal government, institutions supported by federal grants or within the supply chain for a federal agency.
NIST CSF compliance divides all cybersecurity activities into five categories:
- Identify: Which information assets need to be protected?
- Protect: What are the appropriate safeguards for each asset?
- Detect: How will threats and incidents be identified and tracked?
- Respond: How will the organization respond in the event of an incident or breach to lessen the impact?
- Recover: How will services be restored in the event of an incident or breach?
