Tenable Network Security, Inc., announced the findings from the Trends in Security Framework Adoption Survey on Monday, noting that overall security confidence is higher for organizations utilizing the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.
“Historically, CISOs have been hesitant to take full advantage of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework because of a high investment requirement and a lack of regulatory mandate,” Tenable CEO Ron Gula said. “This is changing as organizations begin to shift their mindset from moment-in-time compliance with frameworks like PCI DSS to continuous conformance with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.”
The survey included responses from more than 300 U.S. security professionals from companies and groups representing industries across the nation to better understand the adoption patterns of the top security frameworks.
“The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is one of the most thorough and reliable cybersecurity frameworks available, but it can be challenging for CISOs to conform to these standards all the time,” Gula said. “Tenable’s NIST Cybersecurity Framework solution helps automate and simplify NIST framework adoption, giving organizations the complete visibility and critical context needed to continuously conform to NIST best practices.”
