What is the NIST Cybersecurity Framework?

The NIST Framework is globally accepted as the gold standard to building a cybersecurity program for your organisation. It is a set of guidelines and best practices to help organisations build and improve their cybersecurity posture.
The framework provides a common language for understanding, managing, and expressing cybersecurity risk to all stakeholders, whether that be internal or external. It can be used to help identify and prioritise actions for reducing cybersecurity risk, and it is a tool for aligning policy, business, and technological approaches to managing that risk. 

What are the benefits of aligning to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework?

The StickmanCyber team can help align your organisation with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, delivering a set of key benfits:

Tailored risk based cybersecurity

Instead of one-size fits all, your cybersecurity program is tailored to meet your specific needs, risk tolerance and resources availability, with the focus firmly on risk minimisation.

Collaboration for best results

The lack of visibility of cybersecurity at the board and senior management level is a common problem for security professionals within large organisations. The NIST methodology promotes external and internal collaboration and buy-in. Cybersecurity is quickly integrated into more business functions, such as new product development and infrastructure design, meaning your business is more protected.
