The United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has created a framework for improving critical infrastructure cybersecurity, referred to as the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. The main objective of this framework is to offer organizations a list of items for assessing and enhancing their capacity for preventing, detecting and responding to cyberattacks. According to the framework, cybersecurity should be considered part of an organization’s risk management operations.
