Why Do NIST Guidelines Matter?
The benefit of NIST guidelines is that it helps to ensure an organization’s infrastructure is secure. NIST guidelines assessments also lay the foundational protocol for companies to follow when achieving compliance with specific regulations such as HIPAA or FISMA. Generally, NIST guidelines begin by telling companies to inventory their cyber assets using a value-based approach, in order to find their most sensitive data and prioritize protection efforts around it.
NIST Special Publications (SP) are rapidly emerging as the benchmarks used by the civilian US government and Department of Defense for evaluating the security and privacy posture of organizations. When the Government demands that you demonstrate compliance with NIST SP frameworks, we offer a comprehensive suite of self-assessment services to help you navigate a government-mandated audit. We can work together to minimize assessment impact and ensure that compliance does not come at the expense of business success and with a big price tag.
