NIST Compliance

Managing NIST Compliance More Cost-Effectively

While the standards and guidelines developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are critical to protecting information and information systems, managing NIST compliance can be a challenge for organizations already struggling with the requirements of an increasingly complex regulatory environment.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework provides a set of standards for security controls for information systems at federal agencies. Companies in a wide range of industries must demonstrate NIST compliance as they interact with government agencies. NIST compliance can often help organizations ensure compliance with other regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA and FISMA.

Implementing NIST risk management recommendations and demonstrating NIST compliance can be highly resource-intensive, adding another layer of security burden to IT teams already facing constrained resources and stretched thin by competing priorities. To successfully manage NIST compliance, organizations need solutions that can help to simplify and streamline the tasks of planning, building and running a successful compliance program. That's were Optiv can help.
