The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is voluntary guidance, based on existing standards, guidelines, and practices to help organisations better manage and reduce cybersecurity risk. It fosters cybersecurity risk management and related communications among both internal and external stakeholders, and for larger organisations, helps to better integrate and align cybersecurity risk management with broader enterprise risk management processes.

The Framework is organized by five key functions – Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover.



Businesses stand to gain a number of benefits from implementing NIST, including:

  • NIST helps identify and detect unseen risks and vulnerabilities.
  • NIST helps in protecting and recovering business critical assets.
  • The NIST framework prepares organisations to identify appropriate activities to renew and maintain plans for resilience, and to restore any capabilities or services that were impaired due to a cybersecurity incident.
  • It helps employees and stakeholders outside the security team who do not fully understand cyber risks and therefore fail to “own” critical mitigation tasks.
  • NIST provides complete visibility for risk, asset management, threat detection and mitigation.
