Download the Toolkit and in Three Steps you will be guided from idea to implementation results.
The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated NIST Cybersecurity Framework specific requirements:
STEP 1: Get your bearings
- The latest quick edition of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.
Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…
- Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation
Then find your goals...
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 913 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which NIST Cybersecurity Framework improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 913 standard requirements:
- What collaborative organizations or efforts has your company interacted with or become involved with to improve its cyber security posture (such as NESCO, NESCOR, Fusion centers, Infragard, US-CERT, ICS-CERT, E-ISAC, SANS, HSIN, the Cross-Sector Cyber Security Working Group of the National Sector Partnership, etc.)?
- Not all cyber-connected assets are essential to protect at all cost. Some assets, however, are crown jewels - worth protecting at all costs. Other assets may be more like paperclips where the expense of protection exceeds the benefit. How do you tell the difference?
- Do you support the certified cyber security professional and cyber-informed operations and engineering professionals with advanced problem-solving tools, communities of practice, canonical knowledge bases, and other performance support tools?
- What are your organizations current practices that are used to protect proprietary information and customer privacy and personal information. Does your organization have an information classification and handling policy?
- Should your organization consider adopting, in whole or in part, the NIST cybersecurity framework as a way or method of showing affirmative action and due care in protecting your organizations IP assets?
- What are the risks of hacking via interfaces including telematics, cellular, and Bluetooth, and what are the potential consequences of cyber-attacks on functional safety, infrastructure and privacy?
- What are your organizations policies and procedures governing risk and cyber security risk specifically. How does senior management communicate and oversee corresponding policies and procedures?
- What role(s) do or should national/international standards and organizations that develop national/international standards play in critical infrastructure cyber security conformity assessment?
- What role(s) do or should national/international standards and organizations that develop national/international standards play in critical infrastructure cybersecurity conformity assessment?
- Are you managing risk by measuring and tracking your cyber resilience, including how well systems were protected during an attack to know: is there infection, or was the attack repelled?
Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:
- The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework book in PDF containing 913 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

- The Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard; with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework Self-Assessment and Scorecard you will develop a clear picture of which NIST Cybersecurity Framework areas need attention, which requirements you should focus on and who will be responsible for them:
- Shows your organization instant insight in areas for improvement: Auto generates reports, radar chart for maturity assessment, insights per process and participant and bespoke, ready to use, RACI Matrix
- Gives you a professional Dashboard to guide and perform a thorough NIST Cybersecurity Framework Self-Assessment
- Is secure: Ensures offline data protection of your Self-Assessment results
- Dynamically prioritized projects-ready RACI Matrix shows your organization exactly what to do next:
STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy
The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage NIST Cybersecurity Framework projects with the 62 implementation resources:
- 62 step-by-step NIST Cybersecurity Framework Project Management Form Templates covering over 1500 NIST Cybersecurity Framework project requirements and success criteria:
Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:
- Procurement Management Plan: Have all involved NIST Cybersecurity Framework project stakeholders and work groups committed to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework project?
- Stakeholder Management Plan: Are all payments made according to the contract(s)?
- Project Schedule: It allows the NIST Cybersecurity Framework project to be delivered on schedule. How Do you Use Schedules?
- Change Request: How can you ensure that changes have been made properly?
- Procurement Audit: Is a cost/benefit analysis, a cost/effectiveness or a financial analysis considering life-cycle costs performed and is the funding of the procurement guaranteed?
- Procurement Audit: Is the approval graduated according to the amount disbursed?
- Monitoring and Controlling Process Group: What were things that you did well, and could improve, and how?
- Executing Process Group: What are the critical steps involved with strategy mapping?
- Requirements Management Plan: Who will initially review the NIST Cybersecurity Framework project work or products to ensure it meets the applicable acceptance criteria?
- Procurement Management Plan: Were sponsors and decision makers available when needed outside regularly scheduled meetings?

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:
- Diagnose NIST Cybersecurity Framework projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
- Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
- Integrate recent advances in NIST Cybersecurity Framework and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines
Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make NIST Cybersecurity Framework investments work better.
This NIST Cybersecurity Framework All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
