Ingram Micro's Security Line Card is built around the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cyber Security Framework (CSF) and is designed to help you identify gaps in your customers security posture.
Since its introduction in 2014, NIST CSF has proven to be an elegant security framework for promoting information sharing and reducing risk to critical infrastructure, in both public and private sector settings. It’s no wonder the CSF has already been adopted by nearly 30 percent of businesses in the U.S. alone, with most of those companies stating they view CSF as an industry best practice.
But why have so many companies been so eager to adopt it since 2014? Glad you asked. Here are a few reasons:
• Simplicity – The CSF uses a small set of practical functions so even non-technical users can assess risk and build out a cybersecurity strategy.
• Adaptability – A prioritized, flexible and cost-effective approach makes high-level strategic direction and broad application possible.
• Common Vernacular – a common taxonomy delivers a standardized, easy-to-understand language for stronger communication between all CSF users.
• Community Support – Input by the CSF’s more than 3,000 contributors means more unity and collaboration while also ensuring the CSF’s relevance for years to come.
