From Framework to Action: Understanding the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

  • Training Date:
  • Training Time:

By now, we’ve all heard of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, which was established to help all entities — including government agencies — improve their cybersecurity while maintaining missions-critical operations. At first glance, the Framework, with 102 example subcategories and best practices, can be a bit overwhelming. Luckily, the Framework isn’t about doing everything right now — it’s about thinking through the issues and challenges at your specific agency and developing processes that can evolve over time.

So, where do you begin? How can you take the best practices and recommendations in the Framework and turn them into actionable steps to improve security efforts? Join this on-demand training as we walk you through the Framework and discuss:

  • How the NIST Framework was developed, what’s included and specific questions to consider when determining what issues are most important for your agency.
  • Current challenges the federal government faces when it comes to cybersecurity and using the Framework.
  • A step-by-step process that will get you thinking in the right direction, including: how to scope your priorities, create a technology profile and conduct a risk assessment.
  • How Dell can help you optimize, migrate and manage your IT infrastructure to maximize the benefits to your organization of the Framework’s risk management approach-compliant organization.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is no silver bullet for cybsecurity concerns, but it can help federal agencies – -and, for that matter, all government, education and commercial organizations — improve risk-based security and, for those regulated entities, assist with their regulatory compliance. Register for our training to learn how to turn the Framework into action.

Speakers include: 

  • Matthew Barrett, Program Manager, National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST)
