As such, standards and frameworks for cyber security are being developed by regulatory bodies to ensure that a certain standard of cyber security is achieved. In some cases, especially those involving financial institutions, compliance with these standards is mandatory and required for an organisation to provide a digital service. Although the specifics may change depending on industry and region, there is usually a large overlap between each standard.
