NIST 800-53 Assessment

The Challenge

Making Compliance a Competitive Discriminator with a NIST 800-53 Assessment

The exponential growth of regulatory requirements, aggressive marketing from product vendors, and the difficulty in finding and retaining talent, many businesses today are caught in survival mode when it comes to cybersecurity.  Successful OEM product marketing has led to a tactical security-by-product approach, rather than a strategic controls-based approach. This has left many businesses and security teams with vendor fatigue, running from one product implementation to the next, and rarely are these efforts quantified against desired outcomes or specifically selected security controls.  

The Solution

CyberSheath NIST 800-53 assessment offers a proven set of security controls designed to ensure people, processes, and technologies are safe and effective. Designed to be technology- and policy-neutral, the controls present a transformational opportunity for any business to shift from surviving to thriving.

Additionally, the NIST 800-53 security controls and enhancements focus on the fundamental safeguards and countermeasures necessary to protect information during processing, storage, and transmission.  Long-term success requires security control implementation and measurement of expected outcomes, not just the procurement and deployment of technology and tools.

Business Benefit

Long-term success requires security control implementation and measurement of expected outcomes, not just the procurement and deployment of technology and tools. You need a way to measure, manage and communicate those outcomes to executives and business stakeholders. CyberSheath’s NIST 800-53 assessment can help.

Benefits of a CyberSheath NIST 800-53 assessment include:

  • Consolidate compliance efforts and spend more on actual defense.
    Establishes which activities are important to your critical operations and service delivery to create a documented, repeatable and measurable security program. Enabling you to make data-driven decisions to allocate cybersecurity investment where it is most needed and maximize the impact of every dollar spent.
  • Achieve protection and compliance with one move.
    We will show you how to select, implement and adapt the appropriate security controls to protect your information systems from cyber threats while demonstrating compliance with a variety of governmental, organizational, and institutional security requirements.
  • Implement security controls before products. Ensures the fundamentals of cybersecurity are in place first, establishing measurable controls in alignment with your organization’s strategic vision. Guaranteeing product and technology use aligns with your objectives, and that you’re measuring outcomes rather than tool procurements and deployments. 
  • Achieve clarity and unity across teams. Addresses cybersecurity risk management in a common language, empowering IT and security leaders to communicate with key stakeholders clearly and efficiently. Resulting in improved cooperation, awareness, and understanding across the board, which ultimately leads to a stronger cybersecurity posture for the organization.
