The NIST AI Risk Management Framework: Building Trust in AI

The NIST Artificial Intelligence Risk Management Framework (AI RMF) is a recent framework developed by The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to guide organizations across all sectors in the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and its systems. As AI continues to become implemented in nearly every sector — from healthcare to finance to national defense — it also brings new risks and concerns with it.

NIST CSF: A "Fellowship" for Your Cybersecurity Journey to 2.0

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released version 2.0 of the Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) on February 26, 2024. The original version was released in 2014, one year after Executive Order 13636 was signed on February 12, 2013. This executive order was written to improve critical infrastructure cybersecurity, streamline the sharing of threat information, and to drive action towards developing a cybersecurity framework.

In celebration of its 10th anniversary, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has finally updated its cybersecurity framework, now known as the NIST Cybersecurity Framework 2.0. This isn’t a minor facelift. It's a substantial revamp further improving what's already regarded as the gold standard of cyber risk management frameworks. To learn about the key changes in NIST CSF 2.0, and how they could impact your cybersecurity posture improvement efforts, read on.

What's New in NIST's Cybersecurity Framework 2.0?

The National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF) was published in 2014 for the purpose of providing cybersecurity guidance for organizations in critical infrastructure. In the intervening years, much has changed about the threat landscape, the kinds of technology that organizations use, and the ways that operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) work and interact.

Quantifying NIST CSF Maturity Levels for Data-Driven Cyber Programs

Cybersecurity maturity assessments play a fundamental role in helping chief information security officers (CISOs) determine the level of risk their organizations face due to cyber activity. By illuminating the various areas that are exposed to exploitation, these evaluations serve as a blueprint for cybersecurity leaders tasked with making the business secure amid an increasingly risky operational landscape.

Splunk, Azure, or Sentinel for FedRAMP/NIST Compliance

Whenever a business wants to work with the federal government, they are going to have to comply with certain frameworks to guarantee that, as part of the federal supply chain, it is secured to an appropriate level. The specific frameworks and standards vary based on factors such as impact levels and whether or not you’re in an industry with specific guidelines, like HIPAA or DoD standards.
