Updating the NIST Cybersecurity Framework – Journey To CSF 2.0

Update to CSF | How to EngageFact Sheet | FAQs


The NIST Cybersecurity Framework was intended to be a living document that is refined, improved, and evolves over time.  These updates help the Framework keep pace with technology and threat trends, integrate lessons learned, and move best practice to common practice. NIST initially produced the Framework in 2014 and updated it in April 2018 with CSF 1.1. Based on stakeholder feedback, in order to reflect the ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape and to help organizations more easily and effectively manage cybersecurity risk, NIST is planning a new, more significant update to the Framework: CSF 2.0.

NIST intends to continue to rely on and seek stakeholder feedback throughout the process. This will include public webinars and workshops, as well as seeking feedback on at least one CSF 2.0 draft.
