NIST CSF Version 2.0

National Institute of Standards and Technology Releases Landmark Update to Cybersecurity Framework

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released a major update to its widely regarded Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), a tool meant to help organizations better manage cybersecurity risk. NIST CSF Version 2.0 is all improved with the objective of building on the flourishing framework widely embraced by organizations and added to it is a great scope and a much more comprehensive set of resources to assist all organizations, no matter their size or their industry, in the adoption of the framework.

A Framework for Every Organization

Initially designed to enhance cybersecurity postures within critical infrastructure sectors, the CSF has evolved. The latest iteration, CSF 2.0, acknowledges the dynamic nature of cyber threats that now affect entities of every size and industry. It is meticulously crafted to be scalable and adaptable, ensuring its utility across diverse organizational contexts.

New Dimensions of Governance and Supply Chain Security

In response to the shifting cybersecurity landscape, CSF 2.0 introduces a pronounced focus on governance and supply chain security. Recognizing these facets as crucial to a robust cybersecurity strategy, the update offers fresh insights and guidance on developing a comprehensive cybersecurity governance program and integrating software supply chain security (SSCS) measures into agile software development practices. This proactive stance is further supported by the inclusion of NIST SP 800-204D, reflecting the framework’s commitment to addressing contemporary cybersecurity challenges head-on.



Empowering Implementation with Rich Resources

Understanding the implementation hurdles organizations face, NIST enriches CSF 2.0 with an array of supportive resources. These include:
