The Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) is a voluntary cybersecurity framework consisting of standards, guidelines, and best practices to manage cybersecurity-related risk published by the Nation Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Since the Framework is voluntary, there are no laws or regulations mandating compliance. However, implementing the Framework helps an organization to better understand, manage, and reduce its cybersecurity risks, as well as assist in determining which activities are most important to assure critical operations and service delivery.
Due to the high-level nature of the Framework, it is especially helpful for communicating inside and outside the organization.
