CySAFE for Business
In the world of cyber security, organizations often struggle to keep pace with an ever-changing threat environment. CySAFE was created through a collaborative effort, driven by five Michigan counties and the State of Michigan to develop a free IT security assessment tool to help small and mid-sized organizations assess, understand and prioritize their basic IT security needs. CySAFE was created from three well-known IT security frameworks: 20 Critical Controls, ISO 27001 and NIST. The goal was to combine the 400+ controls from all three frameworks into one condensed list, removing any redundant controls and assess the controls against the organization’s current IT security capabilities. Next, the master list of 35 controls were evaluated over three key factors – cost to implement, time to implement and risk – and were assigned a number based on each key factor.
