Introducing the NIST Cybersecurity Framework 2.0 Reference Tool!
August 15, 2023

Today, NIST is officially unveiling our new Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) 2.0 Reference Tool. This resource allows users to explore the Draft CSF 2.0 Core (Functions, Categories, Subcategories, Implementation Examples) and offers human and machine-readable versions of the draft Core (in both JSON and Excel formats). Currently, the tool allows users to view and export portions of the Core using key search terms. This tool will ultimately enable users to create their own version of the CSF 2.0 Core with selected Informative References and will provide a simple and streamlined way for users to explore different aspects of the CSF Core. 

NIST will continue to add additional features to the CSF 2.0 Reference Tool in the coming months (for example, Informative References will be added once CSF 2.0 is finalized in early 2024, which will help to show the connection between the CSF and other cybersecurity frameworks, standards, guidelines, and resources).

Thank you for sharing in our excitement and for being such an important part of this process. As always, please continue to visit our Journey to CSF 2.0 website for important news, updates, and documents in the coming months—and follow us on X via @NISTcyber.
