Cybersecurity Framework

An internationally recognized framework of best practices for managing cybersecurity risk

Explore the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to strengthen your digital defenses

As a cybersecurity and compliance solutions provider, SanTrac Technologies has the experience and expertise to help your organization improve its security posture by implementing the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF).


The NIST CSF is a globally recognized set of guidelines and best practices designed to bolster organizations’ cybersecurity posture. This framework provides a flexible and consistent approach for organizations to manage and reduce cybersecurity risks, offering a structured methodology that enables businesses to better understand, manage, and communicate their cybersecurity efforts effectively.

The NIST believes that cybersecurity is an ongoing process that requires organizations to continuously monitor their systems and processes, and make improvements as needed. A CSF is therefore a valuable resource for organizations that are looking to improve their cybersecurity posture.

Here are some additional benefits of using the NIST CSF:

  • It is a comprehensive framework that covers all aspects of cybersecurity.
  • It is a well-respected framework that is used by organizations around the world.
  • It is a well-respected framework that is used by organizations around the world.
  • It is a free framework that is available to anyone.

NIST CSF Functions and Activities

The NIST CSF is built upon these five core functions, each representing a critical aspect of a resilient cybersecurity program:


The Identify function focuses on understanding and managing cybersecurity risks. It involves recording critical assets, understanding vulnerabilities, and establishing a risk management process to prioritize actions and resources effectively.
