The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) 2.0

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) 2.0 provides guidance to industry, government agencies, and other organizations to manage cybersecurity risks. It offers a taxonomy of high-level cybersecurity outcomes that can be used by any organization — regardless of its size, sector, or maturity — to better understand, assess, prioritize, and communicate its cybersecurity efforts.

The CSF does not prescribe how outcomes should be achieved. Rather, it links to resources that provide additional guidance on practices and controls that could be used to achieve those outcomes. This document explains CSF 2.0 and its components and describes some of the many ways that it can be used.
