the structure of the paper ๐Ÿ“‘ is simple. a few use cases and then best practices by @nistcyber CSF core function:

the use cases are handy, but really ANYONE can benefit from looking at the framework. it's right on pg 3, @nistcyber CSF is "a simple-yet-effective construct" for your security efforts

it looks at practice, outcomes, and controls

as an aside, @nistcyber has documented the framework thoroughly. you can check it out at

at that site, you'll find the framework, a "new to framework" guide, and material for learning specific aspects of the CSF
