The first step in the NIST Cybersecurity Framework is to identify all equipment, software, and data in use. This includes laptops, smartphones, tablets, and point-of-sale devices. At Shellproof Security, we assist in this process by conducting a thorough inventory of your digital assets and creating a comprehensive cybersecurity policy for your organization.
Protection involves controlling who has access to your network and devices, using security software to protect data, encrypting sensitive data, conducting regular data backups, and updating security software regularly. Shellproof Security helps you implement these protective measures, ensuring that your digital assets are well-guarded against potential threats.
The detection phase involves monitoring computers for unauthorized access, devices, and software. It also includes checking the network for unauthorized users or connections and investigating any unusual activities on the network or by staff. Our team at Shellproof Security uses advanced detection tools and techniques to monitor your systems and identify potential threats.
In the event of a cybersecurity incident, a response plan should be in place. This includes notifying affected parties, keeping business operations running, reporting the attack to law enforcement and other authorities, investigating and containing the attack, and updating the cybersecurity policy and plan with lessons learned. Shellproof Security assists in creating and implementing a robust response plan, ensuring that you're prepared for any cybersecurity incidents.
The recovery phase involves repairing and restoring affected equipment and network components, keeping employees and customers informed of response and recovery activities. At Shellproof Security, we provide the necessary support and guidance to help you recover from a cybersecurity incident, minimizing downtime and disruption to your operations.
The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) is often preferred over ISO 27001 due to its closer alignment with U.S. standards, adaptable guidelines for customization, lower cost without required certification, and seamless integration with other U.S. compliance requirements. It offers flexibility, comprehensiveness, and credibility, making it suitable for entities following U.S. federal standards or needing a framework tailored to industry-specific threats and practices.
Our team conducts a thorough assessment of your organization's cybersecurity posture using the NIST CSF. We identify your current cybersecurity risks, vulnerabilities, and create a customized plan to address them. This assessment helps you understand your cybersecurity posture, identify areas for improvement, and prioritize investments.
We assist in implementing the NIST CSF to enhance your organization's cybersecurity. Our team works with you to develop and implement policies, procedures, and controls as per the framework. This includes identifying all digital assets, controlling access, protecting data, conducting regular backups, and updating security software.
We offer customized training sessions to your employees to enhance their understanding of cybersecurity and threat prevention. Our sessions cover a wide range of topics, including phishing attacks, malware, social engineering, and password hygiene, tailored to your organization's specific needs.
Our continuous monitoring services ensure that your cybersecurity controls remain effective and current. Our team uses advanced tools to monitor your systems, detect potential threats, and respond in real-time, helping you stay ahead of emerging threats and reduce the risk of a cyber attack.
Don’t just safeguard your operations; elevate them with the meticulous standards and robust strategies that NIST offers.
