Unlocking Cybersecurity Excellence: NIST CSF 2.0 Essentials for Internal Auditors

Format: Online

The National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) recently released version 2.0 of their cybersecurity framework (CSF). The first major update since its creation in 2014 following a Presidential Order to help organisations understand reduce and communicate about cybersecurity risk. An update that explicitly aims to help all organisations, not just Critical National Infrastructure providers, to manage and reduce risk.

CSF 2.0 has been updated around its core functions of Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond and Recover to include a Governance function. A function that emphasize the alignment of cybersecurity with corporate risk management and strategy. In addition, CSF 2.0 updates existing functions to improve controls over supply chain security; integrity; security monitoring and updates controls around incident management and recovery.

The increased threat posed by cybersecurity is driving increased national and economic security.  In response nation states are developing and implementing cybersecurity risk management regulation. Regulations such as the SEC Final Cyber Rule, EU NIS 2 and DORA that require the boards of covered entities oversight, assure and attest cybersecurity risk.
