NIST-CSF: Cybersecurity Framework (CSF)
This library of Cybersecurity Playbooks provides a set of fully loaded and editable templates that represent the core of what is generally required by management (including process owners), boards of directors and their audit committees, as well as internal and external auditors of relevant organizations, to document, assess, test, report and oversee the design and operating effectiveness of the typical key internal controls on which management is reliant to maintain compliance with Cybersecurity regulatory requirements.
They are drawn from a range of authoritative sources including the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council's (FFIEC), the Department of Defense, the SEC's Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations (OCIE), and the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS).

What is the NIST-CSF: Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) Playbook?
The NIST-CSF: Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) Playbook enables organizations – regardless of size, degree of cybersecurity risk, or cybersecurity sophistication – to apply the principles and best practices of risk management to improving security and resilience.
An organization without an existing cybersecurity program can use the Framework as a reference to establish one.
The NIST CSF Playbook is a risk-based Framework based on International Standards and consists of:
- 5 Functions (Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover)
- 23 Categories (subdivisions of a Function into groups of cybersecurity outcomes)
- 108 Subcategories (supporting achievement of the outcomes in each Category)
- Informative References:
- NIST SP 800-53
- ISO/IEC 27001:2013
- COBIT 5
- CIS CSC
- ISA 62443
