Since the release of the Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), organizations worldwide have implemented the framework to better understand and manage cyber risk.

The CSF can be applied to businesses of all sizes, across regions and industries, and is being incorporated into national risk frameworks around the globe. Given its proven ability to aid in risk management and reduction, some industries have even begun to mandate its implementation. Namely, the White House recently issued an executive order requiring all federal agencies to immediately begin using the CSF to assess and manage cyber risk to protect critical infrastructure in their enterprises.

Designed to foster positive and productive risk and cybersecurity management dialogue among internal and external business stakeholders, the CSF provides a common language for all appropriate teams, spanning IT, operations, security, finance, C-suite and board of directors. Based on this open dialogue, organizations can more effectively quantify risk and prioritize investments to mitigate it.

Palo Alto Networks® Next-Generation Security Platform aligns with the CSF’s primary directive of enabling critical infrastructure operations to effectively identify, manage and reduce cyber risk. Rooted in prevention, the Next-Generation Security Platform is natively integrated to counter cyberattacks before they manifest in an organization’s environment. With full visibility into traffic – across the network, endpoints and the cloud – organizations can prevent cyberattacks based on how or where applications and data reside or are being used. This allows critical infrastructure organizations to identify the most serious ongoing threats to key business operations and reduce overall cybersecurity risk.

Government Use Case: Decrypt SSL and SSH Traffic to Disrupt Attacker Communications and Theft

SSL-encrypted traffic is growing in government networks, resulting in multiple blind spots for security monitoring tools and creating an opportunity for attackers to hide malware. Many governments are considering or mandating the decryption of encrypted communications moving in and out of their networks. While traditional approaches favor dedicated SSL decryption appliances, these add latency, costs and increase time to resolution for security incidents. Download our use case “Decrypt SSL and SSH Traffic to Disrupt Attacker Communications and Theft” to learn how Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform delivers an integrated approach to SSL decryption that streamlines security operations, improves network performance, and enables agencies to identify and prevent encrypted threats swiftly.
