Digital transformation has catapulted productivity across the globe, improving how we work and how much we accomplish. But our new, decentralized, and expanded environments have also expanded the potential attack surface, creating significant vulnerabilities to ransomware and other cyberattacks.
In response, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed guidelines based on industry best practices to support organizations in improving their cybersecurity efforts. Our whitepaper highlights central components of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, including:
- Five key functions serving as the standard for building an effective security model
- Profiles characterizing an organization’s current security posture, including objectives, resources, and risk appetite
- Implementation tiers to help organizations assess their current level of security, while identifying gaps and opportunities for improvement
