What is NIST-CSF Compliance?
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) promotes a Cyber Security Framework (CSF) to enable organizations to better manage and reduce Cybersecurity risk. The Framework, which was created through collaboration between industry and government, consists of standards, guidelines, and practices to promote the protection of critical infrastructure. The prioritized, flexible, repeatable, and cost-effective approach of the Framework helps owners and operators of critical infrastructure to manage cybersecurity-related risk. It is also common to use the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to help comply with regulations like HIPAA.
