IDC PlanScape: NIST Cybersecurity Framework
Published: July 2, 2019 Content info: 22 Pages

This IDC study provides a detailed analysis of the easiest and most difficult aspects of implementing the NIST CSF and creates three different framework profiles based on risk tolerance levels that organizations can use as starting points for managing their own security programs. "NIST CSF is quickly becoming the de facto standard control framework for large enterprises," says Pete Lindstrom, vice president of Security Strategies. "Organizations should consider how their security programs compare and contrast with others using the framework as common ground."
