The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) is a set of voluntary guidelines and best practices designed to help organizations manage and reduce cybersecurity risk. It was developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a non-regulatory federal agency in the United States.

The NIST CSF was originally intended to improve cybersecurity for critical infrastructure, such as utilities and financial services, but it has been widely adopted across many sectors and organizations of all sizes. It’s also used by many international organizations due to its comprehensive and flexible approach.
