The  NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST-CSF)  was created under  Executive Order  to provide a uniform standard that the government and businesses could adopt to guide their cybersecurity activities and risk management programs. The NIST Framework has now been approved as the governing framework for Cybersecurity for the US government, a growing number of critical infrastructure sectors (financial services, healthcare, energy, etc.) and an extensive list of international governments.
