The NIST Cyber Security Framework (CSF)

The NIST Cyber Security Framework is designed for individual businesses and other organizations to use to assess the risks they face.

An organization typically starts by using the framework to develop a “current profile” which describes its cybersecurity activities and what outcomes it is achieving. It can then develop a “target profile” or adopt a baseline profile tailored to its sector or type of organization. It can then define steps to switch from its current profile to its target profile.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework organizes its “core” material into five “functions,” which are subdivided into a total of 23 “categories.” For each category, it defines a number of subcategories of cybersecurity outcomes and security controls, with 108 subcategories in all.

Here are the functions and categories, along with their unique identifiers and definitions:


This category helps organizations understand their environment to manage cybersecurity risks to systems, assets, data, and capabilities. It includes asset management, business environment, governance, risk assessment, and risk management strategy.


This category outlines safeguards to ensure the delivery of critical infrastructure services. It includes access control, awareness and training, data security, information protection processes and procedures, maintenance, and protective technology.


This category focuses on developing and implementing appropriate activities to identify the occurrence of a cybersecurity event. It includes anomalies and events, security continuous monitoring, and detection processes.


This category involves developing and implementing appropriate activities to take action regarding a detected cybersecurity event. It includes response planning, communications, analysis, mitigation, and improvements.


This category includes activities to maintain plans for resilience and to restore any capabilities or services that were impaired due to a cybersecurity event. It covers recovery planning, improvements, and communications.

Ensure your business meets NIST compliance standards with expert guidance and comprehensive solutions from Empowered IT Solutions. Our team will help you navigate the NIST CSF categories and implement robust cybersecurity practices to protect your assets and data.
