    Hi All,

    NIST recently released NIST SP 1271, Getting Started with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework: A Quick Start Guide.

    The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is organized by five key Functions – Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover. These five widely understood terms, when considered together, provide a comprehensive view of the lifecycle for managing cybersecurity risk over time. This publication outlines key, high-level activities organized by Framework Function that may offer a good starting point for an organization when establishing a secure cybersecurity posture and is applicable for any sector or community seeking to improve cybersecurity risk management.

    Cybersecurity is an important and amplifying component of an organization's overall risk management process. The NIST Cybersecurity Framework enables organizations, regardless of size, degree of cybersecurity risk, or cybersecurity sophistication, to apply the principles and best practices of risk management to improve security and resilience. Through implementation of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, organizations can better identify, assess, and manage their cybersecurity risks in the context of their broader mission and business objectives.
