The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency has released guidance on the implementation of cyber essential practices. CISA said Thursday its Cyber Essentials Toolkit summarizes practices on information technology leadership and cyber readiness.
CISA Cyber Essentials comply with government-recognized standards such as NIST's Cybersecurity Framework and aim to reduce cyber risks faced by organizations.
The guidance tackles risks that threaten information access and organizational survival and reputation. The toolkit features chapters with cyber readiness recommendations related to these risks. CISA plans to update the toolkit with new chapters in the future.
