NIST FAQ

NIST stands for the National Institute of Standards and Technology, a non-regulatory government agency that develops technology, metrics, and standards. NIST produces cybersecurity standards and guidelines to help federal agencies meet federal information security requirements. The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is considered an industry standard for organizations implementing cybersecurity controls. NIST standards are based on a series of security documents, organizations, and publications. The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is an asset for cybersecurity programs requiring stringent security measures and federal agencies.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework exists to aid organizations in developing cybersecurity policies and standards. NIST is not a federal requirement, but simply a set of cybersecurity recommendations. In many cases, complying with NIST guidelines helps federal agencies and organizations ensure compliance with other regulations, such as HIPAA and FISMA. NIST guidelines are often deployed to help organizations meet specific regulatory and compliance requirements.

Assesments

Each assessment and each client is unique. A security assessment typically takes 30 minutes to four hours for a small business with low complexity compliance requirements.

We offer CMMC, HIPAA HITECH, NIST 171 assistance and other cybersecurity compliance services.
