The cyber security profession has successfully established explicit guidance for practitioners to implement effective cyber security programs via the NIST Cyber Security Framework (CSF). The CSF provides both a roadmap and a measuring stick for effective cyber security. Application of the CSF within cyber is nothing new, but the resurgence of Enterprise Security Risk Management and Security Convergence highlight opportunities for expanded application for cyber, physical, and personnel security risks. This NIST CSF can help practitioners build a cross-pollenated understanding of holistic risk.
Main points covered:
• Understand the purpose, value, and application of the NIST CSF in familiar non-technical terms.
• Understand how the Functions and Categories of the NIST CSF (the CSF “Core”) and an organization's “current” and “target” profiles are relevant and valuable in a variety of sectors and environments.
• Understand how an organization’s physical and cyber security resources and stakeholders can align with the NIST CSF as a tool to achieve holistic security risk management.
