NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) is a U.S. government agency focused on providing standards and guidance for information-based security. The NIST ISMS is based on a lifecycle approach that encompasses a range of activities required to meet information security objectives. These include risk identification, control development, control monitoring and evaluation, documentation, and communication. It is a systematic and organizational approach to ensuring the security of information.
NIST defines six core components that organizations must follow to manage and control their cyber risks: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover and Monitor. To begin, organizations must create an understanding of their strategic objectives, risk tolerance, business processes and IT systems. Then, they must implement appropriate security controls to protect systems and data. They must also develop procedures to detect and respond to security incidents and take steps to recover the systems and data. Finally, they must regularly monitor and test the systems and data to ensure that all controls are effective.
The NIST Information Security Management Framework (ISMS) provides a structured and practical approach to implementing and managing information security. It provides a consistent understanding, systematic risk management, efficient resource allocation, an effective framework for meeting legal and regulatory requirements, a structured framework for monitoring ISMS performance, and systematic monitoring and evaluation of ISMS policy implementation.
