Our Cyber Security Framework

Appfab’s Cyber Security Framework acts as a blueprint for assessing and implementing a comprehensive cyber strategy for protecting and monitoring our clients assets. This framework consists of guidelines, best practices and tools to build a strong defence system. It is organised in to four high level functional groups which are essentially the primary pillars of any holistic Cyber Security program. We have adopted NIST Cyber Security framework as the guideline to build Appfab’s Cyber Security Framework.


The Identify Function assists in developing an organizational understanding to managing cybersecurity risk to systems, people, assets, data, and capabilities. Understanding the business context, the resources that support critical functions, and the related cybersecurity risks enables an organization to focus and prioritize its efforts, consistent with its risk management strategy and business needs.

The Protect Function outlines appropriate safeguards to ensure delivery of critical infrastructure services. The Protect Function supports the ability to limit or contain the impact of a potential cybersecurity event.

  • Data Security
  • Managed Cloud Security

The Detect Function defines the appropriate activities to identify the occurrence of a cybersecurity event. The Detect Function enables timely discovery of cybersecurity events.

The Respond Function includes appropriate activities to take action regarding a detected cybersecurity incident. The Respond Function supports the ability to contain the impact of a potential cybersecurity incident.
