In 2013, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) added a Cybersecurity Framework, known as NIST CSF. This voluntary framework is designed to help organizations establish effective cybersecurity practices and create a common language for communicating threats. Zaviant’s team of experts is experienced in helping companies of all sizes adopt NIST CSF to better prevent and prepare for cybersecurity risks while strengthening their overall security posture.

What is NIST CSF?

NIST CSF covers six main functions – Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover, and Govern. It is a voluntary framework (meaning it is not required by law) designed to help organizations establish proactive defense tactics against security risks, including comprehensive incident response plans. NIST CSF also helps companies efficiently restore operations in the event of a cybersecurity issue.

Why Is NIST CSF Important?

With malicious cyber activity steadily on the rise, NIST CSF provides organizations with a trusted framework for managing information security risks and assessing their ability to respond to and recover from incidents. NIST CSF offers a prioritized, flexible, repeatable, and cost-effective approach to cybersecurity risk management, allowing smaller organizations to take advantage of its benefits as well. Ultimately, aligning with a trusted framework like NIST CSF helps organizations protect themselves from the potential fallout of cybersecurity threats while signaling to customers and other stakeholders that the organization takes risk management seriously.

Prepare Proactively

When it comes to cybersecurity, it’s always better to plan ahead. Aligning with NIST CSF helps your organization proactively identify and address risks.

Streamlined & Cost Effective

Smaller and mid-size organizations can especially benefit from NIST CSF, as they often lack the internal resources needed for self-assessments and risk management.

Build Stakeholder Trust

With cyber threats on the rise, aligning with a trusted framework like NIST CSF shows that your organization takes cybersecurity seriously.
