NIST SP 1271: Getting Started with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework: A Quick Start Guide

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued the NIST SP 1271 Getting Started with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework: A Quick Start Guide.

The Special Publication (SP) 1271 provides best practices that can help an organization begin or improve their cybersecurity program and posture.

An abstract from SP 1271:

This document intends to provide direction and guidance to those organizations – in any sector or community – seeking to improve cybersecurity risk management via utilization of the NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (Cybersecurity Framework or the Framework). Cybersecurity is an important and amplifying component of an organization’s overall risk management process. The Framework enables organizations – regardless of size, degree of cybersecurity risk, or cybersecurity sophistication – to apply the principles and best practices of risk management to improve security and resilience. Through implementation of the Framework, organizations can better identify, assess, and manage their cybersecurity risks in the context of their broader mission and business objectives.
