Inventory and classification of cyber security standards

Inventory and classification of cyber security standards

(full text only available in Dutch)


Deploying cyber security measures according to standardized norms is deemed sensible. Standards ensure efficiency of security, facilitate integration and interoperability, enable meaningful comparison of measures, reduce complexity, and provide structure for new developments. Standardization also allows for safe and reliable cooperation in the cyber domain based on well-defined frameworks and agreements.
Over one thousand cyber security standards exist worldwide, begging how to see the forest for the trees. The present study thus seeks to provide an overview of cyber security standards. The question we ask ourselves is: which standards for cyber security are available nationally and internationally and how could these standards be positioned relative to each other?
