What is NIST Cybersecurity Framework?

The National Institute ofTechnology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) provides security guidelines designed to secure critical infrastructure from cyber threats and improve cybersecurity risk management. The Framework Core provides the foundation for modern cybersecurity programs and controls, based upon five functions: identify, protect, detect, response, and recover.

The rise in enterprise use of IoT and the push of OT devices to be connected demands extending the use of NIST CSF to cover all connected assets, not just traditional IT-managed systems. Healthcare, industrial, building automation, transportation, supply chain, physical infrastructure, and enterprise workgroup devices are increasingly network-enabled and exposed to cyberattack.

Ordr Systems Control Engine (SCE) enables organizations to extend the NIST CSF to inventory, classify, and assess all connected devices in a domain, from traditional servers, workstations and PCs to IoT, IoMT and OT devices. Ordr discovers what devices are in the network, profiles device behavior and risks, and then automates appropriate action.
