Why NIST Audit?

NIST framework provides fine detailing of cybersecurity practices like none other framework. NIST cybersecurity framework has 5 primary functions that’s further subdivided into 23 categories. These categories are further partitioned into many subcategories that contain distinct cybersecurity outcomes and security controls. They follow 5 important processes namely:

  • Identify – Identifying the underlying security concerns in information assets; checking the roles and responsibilities of risk management decisions; understand the operational requirements and identify the setbacks in it.
  • Protect – Protect all the access to information security assets to ensure secure delivery of information across all sides; to provide proper cybersecurity awareness on securing security aspects.
  • Detect – Ability to sanely scrutinize the information security assets and detect the potential hazards bound to strike them.
  • Respond – After detecting the potential hazards in assets, responding them with protective actions.
  • Recover – After responding with right treatment to information assets, care must be ensured to recover them from the hazard once and for all with necessary resilient measures.
