The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released a new draft version of its best practice Cybersecurity Framework (CSF). The CSF 2.0 is the first update since it was launched in 2014. Its goal is to help organisations understand, reduce and communicate about cybersecurity risk. The CSF was initially developed for critical infrastructure like the banking and energy industries, but it has proved useful everywhere, from schools and small businesses to local and foreign governments. The latest version reflects the current usage of the framework while anticipating future use. NIST has attempted to make the tool beneficial for all sectors, not just those designated as critical. NIST has also added Govern as a sixth pillar to sit alongside identify, protect, detect, respond and recover.
UPDATE: 170823 - NIST has published a reference tool for its CSF 2.0. The tool lets users explore the CSF 2.0 Core, including Functions, Categories, Subcategories, Implementation and Examples.
