The NIST Cybersecurity Framework has become one of the most cited security standardization guidelines, and has helped create expectations around effective security awareness training.
With this evolution, security awareness and security awareness training programs are no longer considered “recommendations” but rather unofficial requirements for businesses of every size. That’s good news! Research shows that investing in security awareness training not only decreases the likelihood that your organization will face a breach, but lowers the cost if you are hit.
To protect your organization, you must do a better job educating employees on how to identify risk and react appropriately. Do it by developing a security awareness training program that aligns with the NIST framework.
