Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency | U.S. Department of Homeland Security

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework provides a policy framework of computer security guidance for how private sector organizations in the United States can assess and improve their ability to prevent, detect, and respond to cyberattacks.1 It can be used to help
identify and prioritize actions for reducing cybersecurity risk, and it is a tool for aligning policy, business, and technological approaches to managing that risk. Different types of entities—including sector coordinating structures, associations, and organizations—can use the Framework for different purposes.

A Guide to Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of State, has prepared this guide to serve as an overview of the approach to critical infrastructure security and resilience adopted in the United States. As attacks on soft targets and crowded places continue across the globe, the need to address current and emerging challenges increases. Therefore, the Department of Homeland Security and Department of State are working together to enhance domestic and global security, with ongoing programs, and recognizing that new approaches may be needed to address these evolving issues.
