The new NIST Cybersecurity Framework 2.0 brings forth an important update, expanding its reach and applicability across various industries and organization sizes. Among its significant enhancements is the introduction of the ‘Govern’ function, a strategic addition that emphasizes the integral role of governance in a holistic cybersecurity strategy. This new function complements the existing framework pillars—Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover—by emphasizing the importance of governance in managing cybersecurity risks effectively.

Exploring the ‘Govern’ Function: A Pillar of Cybersecurity Governance

The ‘Govern’ function is structured around several key elements crucial for establishing a robust governance framework:

  • Organizational Context: Understanding the organization’s core mission, values, and risk tolerance to tailor cybersecurity strategies effectively.
  • Risk Management Strategy: Aligning cybersecurity initiatives with the organization’s broader business objectives, ensuring a unified approach to risk assessment and mitigation.
  • Policies and Procedures: Crafting and implementing comprehensive policies and procedures that reinforce the cybersecurity strategy, ensuring consistency and accountability.
  • Roles and Responsibilities: Clearly defining and communicating roles and responsibilities within the cybersecurity framework to foster an environment of collaboration and clarity.
