The IoTSI Framework allows for the integration and usage of other frameworks and standards. For instance, where an organisation utilises SABSA for its security architecture methodology it can continue to utilise these skills and resources whilst deploying the IoTSI framework.

Equally, where an organisation is 27001 certified it can align requirements and processes to it 27001 certification and audting requirements.

In the absence of established/mandated  control frameworks the IoTSI Framework can be utilised as a standalone document.
