The National Cyber Security Framework (NCSF) is a standard in Israel that provides a framework for organizations to manage and protect against cyber threats. The standard is based on the international standard ISO/IEC 27001 and is designed to help organizations establish, implement, maintain, and continually improve their information security management systems (ISMS).
The NCSF includes guidelines and best practices for:
- Risk management
- Incident management
- Business continuity management
- Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements
The standard covers a wide range of information security-related topics, including:
- Network security
- Cloud security
- Mobile device security
- Identity and access management
- Data protection
The NCSF is intended to help organizations in Israel protect sensitive information and comply with relevant regulations and laws. Compliance with the standard can also help organizations to protect their reputation, demonstrate their commitment to information security and provide assurance to their customers and other stakeholders.
The certification process for NCSF includes an initial assessment and a surveillance audit to ensure that the organization continues to meet the requirements of the standard. Organizations can achieve certification to NCSF by demonstrating that their ISMS meets the requirements of the standard and passing an assessment by an accredited certification body.
