Security by Design: Effective Implementation of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework with Fortinet

Organizations, faced with the blurring of what were once clear lines between their enterprise business and operational control networks, need to establish a security program that spans both the IT and operational technology OT) domains. The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) provides a framework for a converged security program as well as a common language to improve communications, understanding and collaboration between IT and OT. SANS has developed an Implementation Guide to help organizations use the CSF to achieve this objective. SANS has also developed a Product Overview which identifies how the technologies provided by the Fortinet Security Fabric could play a role in the operational and tactical improvements of an OT network’s cybersecurity program.
