NIST Cyber Security Framework White Paper

Learn how LogRhythm’s NIST Cyber Security Framework can help your organization

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cyber Security Framework (CSF) establishes information security standards and guidelines for critical infrastructure as defined within Executive Order 13636 from the President of the United States. NIST-CSF guides critical infrastructure agencies in documenting and implementing controls for information technology systems that support their operations and assets. These published guidelines cover many areas surrounding “access control”, “audit and accountability”, “incident response”, and “system and information integrity”. Each agency is responsible for implementing the minimum security requirements as outlined by NIST.
