Achieving Successful Outcomes With the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

Cyberattacks are a serious threat to our economy and national security. Government agencies at all levels need to be able to detect, defend and respond to threats.

To address the growing cyber risk, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), in partnership with private sector industry, developed the Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), which provides a high-level taxonomy of cybersecurity outcomes and a methodology to assess and manage those outcomes.

Check out this new infographic to learn the results of recent public sector surveys around the CSF's usage, perception and outcomes in government, particularly its five functions. You'll also learn current statistics, challenges and how CSF is being used in government at the federal, state and local level.
