What is a Common Security Framework (CSF) and why is it important to your organization’s enterprise security? A CSF (sometimes referred to as an IT Security Framework or an Information Security Management System) is a set of documented policies and procedures that govern the implementation and ongoing management of an organization’s security. Think of it as a blueprint or operator’s guide for security. Many organizations are pursuing a Common Security Framework to improve their overall security posture and frequently to aid in meeting the requirements of various compliance and/or regulatory measures.
