When you look into implementing and investing in enhanced security solutions there are a lot of decisions to be made from recommended practices to legal requirements. If your organization is just starting we recommend closely following the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF).
The NIST CSF is a voluntary framework that provides organizations guidance on how to prevent, detect, and respond to cyber-attacks. Adopting NIST CSF accelerates your pathway to maintain compliance with regulatory standards, like PCI DSS.
The Framework Core of the NIST CSF outlines the set of cybersecurity activities and desired outcomes to manage the cybersecurity risk for your organization. It consists of five functions: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover. The functions are divided into a total of 22 categories, which in turn are divided into a total of 98 subcategories; each defining an increasingly granular set of desired outcomes.
