Security Frameworks

Best practice guidance 

Cyber threats and attacks are becoming more common, no matter which industry and no matter the size and reach of your company.

The best way for an organisation to address these challenges is to  implement a strategic, well-developed cybersecurity plan to protect critical infrastructure and  information systems: a cybersecurity framework.


A security framework is a compilation of state-mandated and international cybersecurity policies
and processes to protect critical infrastructure. It includes precise instructions for companies to
handle the personal information stored in systems to ensure their decreased vulnerability to
security-related risks.


Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover


The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued many frameworks for security
issues. One of the best known is the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), a set of guidelines that
were originally developed for government entities and have since been adapted for private sector
use. Not only does CSF provide a framework to understand cybersecurity risk management, it also  includes guidelines to help companies prevent and recover from attacks.

Here we take a look at trending topics, useful insights and technologies that solve everyday problems
around security frameworks.
