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 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.
