Microsoft Azure Enables NIST CSF Compliance: Detect Function

Matt Rathbun

Today, as part of our ongoing support of the Cybersecurity Executive Order, I am pleased to announce the third release in a series of documents on enabling compliance with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) through Microsoft Azure services. This release specifically outlines how to implement the Detect function requirements using the services offered by Azure. The whitepaper is available on the Service Trust Portal under “Compliance Guides.” We will publish a similar guide for the remaining CSF Function areas in the coming weeks.

Microsoft is committed to assisting our Federal customers, who must comply with the Presidential Executive Order on Strengthening the Cybersecurity of Federal Networks and Critical Infrastructure. We are continuing to develop tools and resources to help with both addressing the core risks outlined in the order, and implementing the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) as the order requires.

Check out to find our consolidated blogs, whitepapers, videos, risk assessment templates, compliance automation software, and schedule of events related to the order. Check back weekly for new content throughout the Executive Order reporting period.

As we continue this series, your feedback will allow us to create more specialized guidance and documentation. E-mail with all feedback on our NIST CSF Guidance.
