Redscan analysis of NIST NVD reveals record number of vulnerabilities in 2021

Our latest analysis of the National Vulnerability Database (NVD) has revealed that 2021 has now officially broken the record for common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) logged by researchers. NIST is the US National Institute of Standards and Technology, and its National Vulnerability Database (NVD) is a repository of Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs).

NIST's Definition of Cloud Computing

According to recent research, 92 percent of large organizations use more than one cloud. The report also predicts that by the end of 2021, 55 percent of enterprise workloads will rely on a public cloud. Clearly cloud adoption is expanding, and will continue to do so into the future. Despite its prevalence, cloud computing can be a confusing concept.

Which NIST Framework Is Best For Your Organization?

NIST is the abbreviated name of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. It’s one of many federal agencies under the U.S. Department of Commerce, and is one of the oldest physical science laboratories in the United States. The agency develops technology and security policies that help drive innovation in science and technology-related industries; and better prepares those industries to meet the requirements of the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA).

NIST Standards and Guidelines for Enhancing Software Supply Chain Security Include Security Ratings

At SecurityScorecard, we believe that making the world a safer place means transforming how organizations view cybersecurity. For us, this means that companies must take a holistic approach, protecting systems not just from the inside, but also knowing what an organization’s vulnerabilities look like from the outside-in to see what the hackers are seeing.

NextLabs and Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA)

NIST Zero Trust Architecture (NIST SP 800-207) is a framework focused on data protection. It assumes threats can originate from either inside or outside a network. Instead of building security on the perimeter of the network, ZTA focuses on protecting resources and data within the network at the time of access. All networks, regardless of how much authentication is used to gain access, are not trusted and are presumed to be potentially compromised.

The Intersection of Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) and Data-Centric Security

In this video, NextLabs explores the intersection of Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) and Data-Centric Security. ZTA and data-centric security are the foundation of NIST cybersecurity framework. They are fundamental to address many of the modern-day security challenges.

What is NIST Cybersecurity Framework? ( CSF ) | Complete Guide

NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) is a voluntary security framework created through industry, academic, and US government collaboration that aims at reducing cyber risks to critical infrastructure. The framework is a result of the Presidential Executive Order (EO) 13636 that directed NIST to develop a framework in collaboration with the security stakeholders of the economic and National security of the US.

Key Takeaways From the NIST Ransomware Risk Management Profile

Ransomware groups have generated so much damage that the United States Federal government has made it a top priority to thwart such efforts including, hosting a major international summit on the topic, setting up a ransomware task force and repeatedly urging organizations to improve their cyber resilience.
