The Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) was created by The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as a voluntary cybersecurity framework based on existing standards, guidelines, and practices for organizations to better manage and reduce cybersecurity risk. Although CSF was initially targeted at critical infrastructure it has now become the de facto cybersecurity standard and is being implemented universally in both the private and public sectors.
The CSF life cycle involves the following steps:
Step 1: Prioritize and Scope
Step 2: Orient
Step 3: Create a current profile
Step 4: Conduct a risk assessment
Step 5: Create a target profile
Step 6: Determine, analyze and prioritize gaps
Step 7: Implement action plan
