Back in 2013 U.S. President Barack Obama signed Executive Order (EO) 13636. The EO spoke to the nations vulnerable infrastructure and the need for a proactive cybersecurity framework for the private sector to embrace and the public sector to follow. A contract was awarded to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and a year later, in 2014, the organization released a 41-page introduction to their framework. The Framework presents industry standards, guidelines, and practices in a manner that allows for communication of cybersecurity activities and outcomes across the organization from the executive level to the implementation level. The Framework Core consists of five concurrent and continuous functions— Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover. When considered together, these Functions provide a high-level, strategic view of the lifecycle of an organization’s management of cybersecurity risk.
