Don’t reinvent the wheel. We have already created a systematic approach to achieve NIST SP 800-171 compliance, developed proprietary compliance technology, and built an experienced workforce of compliance experts.
You don’t need to achieve compliance alone. We have nearly 20 years of experience guiding organizations like yours into good standing with their compliance frameworks. We can get you there— on-time and on-budget.
NIST compliance is complex to understand and difficult to align with. We will map your people, processes, and technology to develop a critical path that will fill the gaps in your organization’s unique requirements.
NIST compliance is within reach—no matter your available resources. We will work together to create a customized project plan that will fit within your budget by focusing on your highest-impact compliance actions.
Give each of your processes the maximum level of security possible. We can layer additional regulatory, compliance, and risk services over your entire organization, and make sure you maintain an optimal security posture.
NIST compliance is just the start. Take advantage of our 18 years of experience and deploy industry-leading security testing, application security, and vulnerability assessments to upgrade your defenses.
You can achieve NIST SP 800-171 compliance in just two phases- with the option to gain ongoing compliance management.
First, we will develop your detailed project plan, charter, and reporting processes—with defined roles and responsibilities—so you know who will be doing what and when within your implementation.
During this phase, we will adapt our standard processes to your unique needs. We will discover your data’s accuracy and availability. We will review your existing business processes and workflows. And we will map your system architecture. When possible, we will also validate the data that you share with third parties.
By the end of this phase, we will give you a clear map of what Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) you currently store, process, and transmit. Together, we will use this map to define a project that will fit into your requirements, budget, and timeline.
Next, we will see how well each of the data elements that we chose to include in your project scope currently meets the NIST SP 800-171 framework.
To achieve NIST compliance, each of your data elements must meet a series of requirements that are grouped into 14 security domains. These domains are:
|Access Control||Awareness and Training|
|Configuration Management||Identification and Authentication|
|Physical Protection||Risk Assessment|
|System and Communications Protection||System and Information Integrity|
To see how well each of your data elements meets each of these security domains and requirements, we will perform a gap assessment. We will conduct a series of interviews, process walkthroughs, artifacts validations, and reviews of your policies, procedures, and system configurations.
By the end of this phase, we will give you a complete picture of your current state and where you currently fail to achieve NIST compliance. Depending on the scope of your project, we may also define a prioritized roadmap and a Systems Security Plan (SSP) that will address the compliance gaps we’ve found and efficiently move you into good standing with NIST.
Depending on your needs, we can provide a range of additional compliance management services.
Finally, we offer a range of additional services that can be folded into your NIST SP 800-171 project. These additional services will help you maintain NIST compliance with less work while improving your baseline security posture. These services include, but are not limited to:
|Virtual CISO||Risk Management|
|Maturity Assessment||Internal Audit|
|Logging and Monitoring— MDR TM
||Security Testing—MDR VM
