IT Governance USA releases NIST green paper

26/06/2018

With data breaches and ransomware attacks on the rise, it is important to protect your organization. To help organizations understand how to manage and reduce cyber risk, IT Governance USA is pleased to offer its NIST Cybersecurity Framework and ISO 27001’ green paper to download for no cost
The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is a voluntary framework based on existing standards, guidelines, and practices, for organizations to manage and reduce cybersecurity risk. It is the result of the 2013 executive order, “ Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity,” signed by President Obama, which called for an easy-to-understand framework that could be implemented by critical infrastructure to manage cybersecurity risk. 

ISO 27001 sets out the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS). It sets the requirements against which an organization’s ISMS can be audited and certified.

Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “It is paramount for organizations to take adequate measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their information, as well as the IT systems that maintain it. We are pleased to offer organizations guidance to safeguard against cyber-attacks.

The green paper will help organizations understand:

·        How the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and ISO 27001 can work in conjunction with each other

·        How the frameworks can help your organization implement a tailored solution to changing cybersecurity threats

·        How ISO 27001 can deliver an effective ISMS that helps you comply with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and evolves to meet future requirements

IT Governance offers an extensive range of products and services to help organizations meet their cybersecurity requirements.
