Achieving Successful Outcomes With the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

Cyberattacks are a serious threat to our economy and national security. Government agencies at all levels need to be able to detect, defend and respond to threats.

To address the growing cyber risk, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), in partnership with private sector industry, developed the Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), which provides a high-level taxonomy  of cybersecurity outcomes and a methodology to assess and manage those outcomes.

To learn more about the CSF’s usage, perception and outcomes in government, particularly its five functions, GovLoop teamed with Symantec, a leader in cybersecurity, to survey groups of federal employees. This infographic offers statistics, challenges, and how CSF is being used in government at the federal, state and local level.
