Answer: NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF) provides a policy framework for computer security, while ISO 27001 provides a framework for information protection. ISO 27001 uses a process approach and the PDCA cycle, while NIST CSF uses the approach Identify - Protect - Detect - Respond - Recover.

Since most information today flows in cyber environments, NIST CSF can be used to support many of the IT-related controls described in ISO 27001 Annex A. On the other hand, ISO 27001 management practices can help build, maintain and improve a cyber environment which relies on NIST CSF.
