We are excited to share with you the second edition of our series “Security is a process, not a product”. For this second edition we’ve gathered the elements that relate to the “Protect” function of the NIST framework to help you notice the protection needs and requirements of your company to have a successful security performance, letting you focus on reducing costs and/or driving growth.
In the first blog entry, we discussed and emphasized the importance of identifying and adhering to a process as opposed to letting security products drive IT decision making. We introduced NIST CSF, a widely recognized framework that is used as a standard when it comes to information security, and walked through, at high level, the 5 functions of the framework: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond and Recover.
According to the NIST official site, the “Protect” function outlines appropriate safeguards to ensure delivery of critical infrastructure services. The Protect Function supports the ability to limit or contain the impact of a potential cybersecurity event.
Stay tuned for our following editions where we will talk about the remaining NIST Framework functions: Detect, Respond and Recover and how they correlate with Microsoft Technology Solutions.
