In 2013 the President directed the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop a framework for reducing cyber risks to critical infrastructure. And on February 12, 2014, NIST released the first version of the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity. The prioritized, flexible, repeatable, and cost-effective approach of the Framework helps owners and operators of critical infrastructure manage cybersecurity-related risk.
Practitioners should keep in mind that the Framework is an overall structure that can be addressed by different security standards, including NIST 800-53, ISO 270001, and COBIT 5.
