NIST Cybersecurity Guidelines

NIST Guidelines are a set of recommendations developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to help organizations protect their information systems from cyber threats. The guidelines are designed to provide a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity, including strategies for identifying and mitigating risks, developing secure architectures and designs, implementing secure development processes, and managing security operations. NIST Guidelines provide organizations with a framework for developing, implementing, and maintaining a secure information system. The guidelines are updated periodically to reflect the latest cyber threats and security best practices.
