Cybersecurity Strategy PBG Networks

Evaluate Your Security Using the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF)

At PBG Networks our security methodology follows the CSF to identify and quickly recover from current and future security vectors.

NIST Cybersecurity Framework

  • Identify: Solutions that identify and inventory assets and vulnerabilities that reside on devices, applications and networks. They will help you gain an institutional understanding of what systems need to be protected and help to identify your current attack surface.
  • Protect: Prevent or limit the impact of cyber-attacks through access control, data security, patch management and maintenance, and protective methods. These solutions help you protect various asset classes like workstations, network devices, software applications, networks, data, and users.
  • Detect: These solutions will allow you to detect cybersecurity events and anomalies that occur within devices, applications, and networks. They can assess the potential impact of an event by, discovering anomalous activity, continuously monitor information assets, hunt for intrusions, and provide security analytics.
  • Respond: Take action and respond once a cybersecurity event is detected. These solutions assist by eradicating intrusion footholds and assessing the damage caused by an attack.
  • Recover: These solutions help you return to normal operations after an undesirable cybersecurity event by restoring capabilities, services that were impaired and documenting lessons learned.

NIST CIS steps for Cybersecurity

What does CSF allow you to achieve?

CSF provides a governance model that will help you evaluate your security practices, establish and improve upon your present security posture and aid decision makers in the buying process. CSF is not meant to replace your cybersecurity operations, but rather is a complement to your existing business.

CIS security controls

An organization’s current security posture is determined by examining the technical, procedural, and organizational implementation of the security controls. These controls have been mapped to the NIST CSF and provide a practical way to identify an organization’s benchmark level.

Comparison of the current posture and target posture identify gaps that must be mitigated to meet cybersecurity objectives. Based on the identified security flaws, PBG will provide a mitigation plan to address the security shortcomings and build a road map for the organization to achieve risk management success.
