NIST CSF Framework at the Core of Your Cybersecurity Program

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) is the ideal foundation of a proactive cybersecurity program for organizations across many industries. Rather than using an ad-hoc approach to cybersecurity, setting NIST CSF standards as the program's basis makes governance and compliance much simpler. Silent Sector will help choose and implement the appropriate controls, create a roadmap, and mature your security measures to achieve NIST alignment.

Our team of industry experts develops and matures strong cybersecurity programs aligned to NIST CSF, creating a risk management foundation that allow organizations to grow with clarity and peace of mind.

From consulting on individual controls to aligning entire organizations to NIST standards, Silent Sector's Expertise-Driven Cybersecurity approach tailors NIST risk assessments and support services to the unique needs of each client.

Why is a NIST CSF Assessment Important?

Rather than selling tools and products, our distinct approach makes the most out of the technologies you already have. If tools and products really are necessary to achieve business objectives, we'll provide a comparative analysis and product recommendations so you can make informed decisions. This expertise-focused approach saves clients significant time and money, both of which can be refocused on business operations and growth. 

Silent Sector can help you break through the cybersecurity growth barriers with our proven NIST CSF assessments and solutions specifically designed for mid-market and emerging enterprises.

About the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

The National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework was published in 2014 in response to Presidential Executive Order 13636 which called for a standardized security framework for critical infrastructure organizations in the U.S. It leverages 5 standards/guides that together provide a comprehensive platform for cybersecurity operations, risk management, and strategic management. Moreover, NIST CSF is organized into 5 core functions that work in a symbiotic process to represent a secure lifecycle. The 5 functions are Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover. Each core function is essential to a strong security posture and the effective cybersecurity risk management. The NIST CSF is a great guideline because it transforms organizational security from a reactive to a proactive approach. NIST CSF plays a central role in other frameworks because it fills the gap between cybersecurity operations and risk planning efforts that are typically done at the executive level.
