NIST Assessment and Compliance

Assurance with the definitive security standards

Frequently Asked Questions

Do the NIST guidelines apply to my organization?

That is highly dependent on what your organization does and who they do it for. If your organization is a branch of the federal government or supports the federal or local government in some way, there is a NIST standard that is applicable.

I already do a SOC2 report. Why should I do NIST assessment?

A SOC2 report is not a security framework. It is a well known medium to provide information for stakeholders outside of your organization about your security program, according to the auditor. Conversely, the NIST Risk Assessment or Audit measures your organization’s security posture based upon continually updated best practices and modern technologies, even to the point of specific hacking attack vectors. Combining a SOC2 report in conjunction with a NIST assessment not only let you know how you can do to protect your organization, it provides stakeholders the information about the state of your security program.

We don’t have a lot of users or systems. Is there a NIST standard for my organization?

Yes! The NIST is customizable based upon the needs of the organization, adjustable to the technologies used, size of the organization, and information that needs to be protected.

My organization is very mature and we have multiple standards that we comply with. Why would we want to use the NIST standards?

Most information security standards are based off of the NIST Special Publications in one way or another but are pared down for protecting a specific kind of information. The NIST guidelines take a holistic security approach and allow the organization to ensure the right amount of security for all applications and data concerns, even physical security and paperwork.
