Securing Your Organization Cybersecurity Framework
The Securing Your Organization framework points organizations in the right direction to moving their cybersecurity efforts into a full-blown, well-organized program.
The Securing Your Organization framework includes 13 items divided into three levels. As the journey starts with some easier items and gets more detailed as you move along, all organizations should start at Level 1 and complete the tasks in that level before beginning Level 2 or 3.
Remember that improving your cybersecurity posture is an ongoing commitment. Keep track of which level you are on to measure progress and share within your organization.
