NIST Framework for improving critical infrastructure cybersecurity

With MicroArx technology you can align with the NIST framework to improve security and insurability.


Framework Core

The Framework Core has five key functions. The first two are essential for your organization to complete. MicroArx technology can automatically deliver the other three to protect your critical Edge assets.

  1. Identify: Develop an organizational understanding to manage cybersecurity risk to systems, people, assets, data, and capabilities.

  2. Protect: Develop and implement appropriate safeguards to ensure delivery of critical services.

  3. Detect: MicroArx technology can automatically identify the occurrence of a cybersecurity event.

  4. Respond: MicroArx technology can automatically take action regarding a detected cybersecurity incident.

  5. Recover: MicroArx technology can automatically restore any capabilities or services impaired due to a cybersecurity incident.


At MicroArx, we believe that the NIST framework provides the best publicly available guide for businesses and organizations that want to protect critical assets from cyber attack. By partnering together we can apply the framework to protect your critical assets.

NIST Framework And Cyber Insurance Underwiting

Insurers are turning to the NIST framework to provide a comprehensive guide for assessing cybersecurity risk. According to the Carnegie Endowment, “increasingly popular cyber risk management maturity models, such as… the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Cyber Security Framework (NIST-CSF), can serve as core underwriting methodologies”.

Cyber insurance is an increasingly important tool for executives and boards to manage cyber security risk. As more insurers are entering the market, the NIST framework has become an increasingly important tool to guide their efforts to set premiums. At MicroArx, we can ensure that your critical Edge assets are aligned with the NIST framework.
