Cybersecurity Framework

NISTs Cybersecurity Framework impacts all public and private organizations that manage critical infrastructures in the US

The National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NISTs) Cybersecurity Framework impacts all public and private organizations that manage critical infrastructures in the United States. DHS classifies critical infrastructure as companies in banking & finance, communications, critical manufacturing, defense industrial base, energy, emergency services, food & agriculture, healthcare, IT, utilities, and transportation.

In order to reduce and mitigate the risks associated with their critical infrastructures, organizations need to assess their supply chain. Supply chains start with Network Equipment Manufacturers (NEM) who develop and deliver the network and security devices that manage critical infrastructures. Service providers and enterprises need to feel confident that they understand the risks associated with deploying critical infrastructure components that are interconnected and protected by network switches, routers, load balancers, firewalls, Intrusion Prevention Systems and other security tools. The resiliency, stability and vulnerability of critical infrastructure components needs to be assess and tested.

What to Test

Any organization entrusted with managing critical infrastructures should be mitigating risks by testing their critical infrastructure components:
  • Ability to detect, isolate and prevent—thousands of known and unknown security attacks and vulnerabilities
  • Ability to operate under attacks, anomalies, variable loads and throughput conditions—keeping performance high while stopping attacks is critical
  • Ability to test with realistic traffic that simulates real world applications and security attacks—with more than 3,000 applications including mobile apps you can simulate most realistic user scenarios
