NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity

Venture Smarter with the NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.png

The Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (“The Framework”) provides a prioritized, flexible, repeatable, performance-based, and cost-effective approach to managing cybersecurity risk at all levels in an organization. It is applicable to organizations of all sizes and sectors.

The Framework provides a common language for understanding, managing, and expressing cybersecurity risk both internally and externally. It can be used to help identify and prioritize actions for reducing cybersecurity risk, and it is a tool for aligning policy, business, and technological approaches to managing that risk.

The original version of the Framework (version 1.0) was developed in a year-long, collaborative process in which NIST served as a convener for industry, academia, and government stakeholders. This collaboration continues under the direction of the Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2014, as NIST works with stakeholders from across the country and around the world to develop and evolve the Framework.
