Protecting company assets from outside and inside cyber attacks is, as it should be, the top priority of company executive team. While many people approach cybersecurity from a hardware or software perspective, a holistic approach to cybersecurity needs much more than that. It requires, for example, security training and planning, risk assessment and mitigation planning, personnel security, infrastructure security, security training and much more. Organizations such as National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has published a comprehensive Cyber Security Framework (CSF) which provides overall guidance on how an organization should approach cybersecurity, however, it is a general framework that needs to be tailored to an organization’s needs.
