Navigating the Cybersecurity Landscape Part II – Key Frameworks for Enhanced Security


A Comprehensive Exploration of Key Frameworks for Enhanced Security


This presentation highlights four distinctive cybersecurity models, namely the ITU National Cybersecurity/ CIIP, IoT Cybersecurity Alliance (IOTCA), IoT Security Foundation (IoTSF) Security Compliance Framework, and the International Office of Standardization (ISO) 27001. Each of these represents a unique approach to securing information and data, with a focus on collaborative action, comprehensive security layers, risk-based compliance, and effective security management. The presentation also discusses the MITRE ATT&CK, a model for identifying and documenting common cybersecurity tactics, and the framework provided by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the key elements that a national cybersecurity strategy should include according to the ITU’s CIIP model, including government/private sector collaboration and incident management capabilities.
  • Familiarize with the IoTCA’s framework for end-to-end security and the potential risks that it aims to mitigate.
  • Explore the IoTSF’s risk-based approach to compliance and its focus on six key areas: management governance, engineered for security, fit for purpose cryptography, secure network framework and applications, secure production processes and supply chains, safe and secure for the customer.
  • Understand the ISO 27001 requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system.
  • Learn about the common attack patterns documented in the MITRE ATT&CK framework and how to defend against them.
  • Discover the guidance offered by the NCSC’s Cyber Assessment Framework (CAF) for UK Critical National Infrastructure (CNI), organizations subject to the NIS Directive cyber regulation, and organizations managing cyber-related risks to public safety.


Each of these cybersecurity models, frameworks, and regulations represents a valuable tool in the fight against increasingly sophisticated cyber threats. Combining their approaches can provide organizations with a robust and comprehensive cybersecurity strategy.
