CYBERSECURITY FRAMEWORKS

Bring Best Practices to Cybersecurity Strategy

“Cybersecurity Frameworks bring a common vision to the objectives of cyberattackers and the step-by-step tactics and techniques they will use. This shared language enables you to communicate clearly with others in the cyberdefense community about exact details of a threat. It also provides a useful means for describing your current security controls and processes.”

Anthony James, VP of Product Marketing, Infoblox

The Critical Importance of Cybersecurity Frameworks

Cybersecurity frameworks are policies and procedures provided by authoritative organizations to manage and reduce cybersecurity risk. Cybersecurity frameworks are generally based upon industry best practices and provide the methodology and structure you need to protect and defend critical digital assets. In some industries, cybersecurity frameworks may be mandatory to meet compliance requirements.

The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Framework

The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework [PT1] (NIST CSF) was designed to protect critical infrastructures like power plants and other essential public infrastructure from cyberattackers. The basic tenets of NIST CSF can apply to any organization to better improve and manage security. Several NIST standards cover cybersecurity.

The ISO 27001 Information Security Management System Framework

The ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 are important standards that CISOs are using to address business risks and improve their overall cyberdefense. The ISO standards can help organizations build a resilient information security framework to better meet current threats and rapidly adapt to new ones.

The MITRE ATT&CK Framework

The MITRE ATT&CK Framework is a globally accessible knowledge base of adversary tactics and techniques based on real-world observations. The knowledge base serves as a foundation for the development of specific threat models and methodologies in the private sector, in government and in the cybersecurity product and service community.

Zero Trust Framework and Strategy

Forrester Research introduced the Zero Trust Framework about a decade ago. The baseline concept is that no users should ever be trusted even if they have been successfully granted access to internal networks. One of the key operational requirements of Zero Trust is to continually inspect, validate and verify all users and their traffic to critical and confidential data resources. Zero Trust also is built upon the principle of micro-segmentation, which limits users to the smallest network constructs possible to constrain any potential malicious activity in case their credentials are compromised or the network segment is penetrated.

The ISACA COBIT 2019 Framework for Governance and IT Management

The Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA®) association COBIT® 2019 framework supports the management of information technology (IT) and IT governance across the enterprise. Enterprise governance enables business and information technology personnel to align their responsibilities to optimize success and overall value delivery. Enterprise governance maximizes the delivery of value and minimizes business risk.

The Center for Internet Security Controls Framework

The Center for Internet Security Controls Framework is a set of defense-in-depth best practices assembled by IT experts based upon their experience in countering cyberattacks. The CIS Controls Framework enables organizations to improve the assessment of current threats and rapidly adapt to new ones. It will empower your security team to better share information about attacks and attackers, determine root causes, and select and apply the right defense mitigation methods.
