Key Challenges Addressed
In order to effectively implement a cyber security and compliance framework, organisations must have the skills and cyber security expertise in place to implement a vast amount of controls covering the systems, networks and services within their operating context and different technologies.
To ensure this is not a tick box exercise or something that provides a false sense of security, this often requires specific expertise within areas such as operating multi-cloud and hybrid cloud and, for critical infrastructure organisations, Operational Technology (OT).
Combine these requirements with the need to implement controls in areas such as compliance, security operations, penetration testing, incident management and cyber security make implementing frameworks a complex programme or project.
This typically results in higher operational overheads as well as additional complexity in implementing control frameworks and achieving certification. In turn, organisations may also lack certainty on the costs of such initiatives, with no guarantee of successful certification.
Once the certification is achieved, there can be additional challenges in ensuring that management systems are properly handled and that security controls are effectively utilised to drive maturity and business value. This is often a missed opportunity, where gaps in control objectives under particular security standards may discourage organisations from seeking to meet other compliance frameworks in the future.

A cyber security framework is a set of guidelines and best practices that help organisations protect their information assets from cyber threats. By following a cyber security framework, they can implement effective security controls and countermeasures to reduce the risk of a successful cyber attack.
The most popular cyber security framework is the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework. This framework provides guidance on how to identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover from a cyber attack.
A cyber security framework should be updated regularly to ensure that it is effective and up to date. The frequency of updates will depend on the specific framework and who is using it, but it is generally recommended that a framework be updated at least annually.
In some cases, more frequent updates may be necessary to keep up with the rapidly changing landscape of cyber threats.
