The Reality of Adopting the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

This presentation is a recording of a webinar given on 2/25/2021 by Clearwater's Vice President, Consulting Services, Cathie Brown and Regulatory Compliance and Information Security, Adam Nunn.


The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is reported to be the most widely adopted security framework in the United States. More than 56% of healthcare organizations that have adopted a security framework have chosen to use the NIST CSF.

What does that really mean? Adoption of the NIST CSF is much more than implementing controls across the IT environment. IT includes standards, guidelines, and best practices to manage your organization’s cybersecurity-related risk. When leveraged effectively and fully, the NIST CSF provides a prioritized, flexible, and cost-effective approach for safeguarding your patients’ health, health information, corporate capital, and earnings from the impact of cybersecurity-related risks.

This webinar will dive into what it takes to actually adopt the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and how that adoption can mature cyber risk management across your organization.
