Cybersecurity threats exploit the increased complexity and connectivity of critical infrastructure systems, which places national security, the economy, and public safety at risk. To combat these cyber risks, NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) has developed a risk-based Cybersecurity Framework to provide government agencies and the private sector with industry standards and best practices to help manage cybersecurity risks. In May 2017, the U.S. Presidential Executive Order on Strengthening the Cybersecurity of Federal Networks and Critical Infrastructure was signed, holding agencies, as well as owners and operators of critical infrastructure in the U.S., accountable for managing cybersecurity risks.
Archer NIST-Aligned Cybersecurity Framework app-pack provides straightforward guidelines for addressing and managing cybersecurity risks. Profile owners can catalog the current state, prioritize and scope profile elements, and define their desired or targeted state outcomes for their organization’s cybersecurity program. Assessors then evaluate these profiles against the Cybersecurity Framework categories. Previous assessments can be archived for comparison with current Profile and measure progress. Reports and dashboards provide clear insight to the cybersecurity current state and progress being made toward the desired cybersecurity state.
With the Archer NIST-Aligned Cybersecurity Framework offering, government agencies and private sector businesses can assess and measure their cybersecurity posture, address gaps, and report on cybersecurity posture in a meaningful way that is understood by all stakeholders.
NIST has developed the NIST Privacy Framework which utilizes the same methodology and process to evaluate an organizations implementation to protect individuals’ privacy. The NIST Privacy Framework contains Core Activities that overlap with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. With Archer NIST-Aligned Cybersecurity Framework release 6.8, the offering has been combined with the Archer NIST-Aligned Privacy Framework to allow you to assess both privacy and cybersecurity practices within your organization. Check out the Archer NIST-Aligned Privacy Framework app-pack, to gain a better understanding of how this offering can augment your Archer NIST-Aligned Cybersecurity Framework implementation.
