Cybersecurity Frameworks

Explore the cybersecurity frameworks that can be used to develop and implement cybersecurity policies including policies for cloud platforms. You must pay closer attention to the compliance side of cybersecurity by examining the similarities and variations between compliance frameworks. Some frameworks allow organisations to implement a standardised procedure to help deal with or mitigate cyber attacks. One thing that an organisation shouldn’t do is make up its own security framework.

The links to the main sites are provided below for your research. Some of the most reliable frameworks we must look at can include:
