Practical NIST CSF Worksheet

Published by Torry Crass on

A quick preemptive thank you for those that attended my talk on “Practical Application of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework” for SecureWorld Charlotte 2017.

As mentioned in the presentation I’ve put together a modified version of a basic CSF worksheet that has expanded capabilities intended to help out the CSF practitioner in gathering and creating an actionable set of activities to improve their security posture.

A link to that file is included below:

Extended NIST CSF 1.0 Alignment Template v030217


It is important to note that this file is for version 1.0 of the NIST CSF. I intend to provide an updated 1.1 compatible version once that framework version moves toward finalization. While 1.1 does contains some important changes, it is currently only in draft status and more revisions could happen between now and finalization at the end of the year.

If you use this tool and modify or distribute it. Please leave the credits related to modification and expansion in place. It’s the nice thing to do. =)
