Agencies that run federal information systems, are periodically assessed to determine their compliance level according to the NIST framework. To help our customers meet their compliance requirements, we have now included support for NIST 800-53!

NIST Special Publication 800-53 (Revision 5) – draft version was released on August 2017. This version has some significant changes:

– It incorporates the cybersecurity frameworks that allow integration with different risk & security approaches for example by using Cybersecurity Framework appropriate language.

– It makes the security and privacy controls more outcome-based  by changing the controls structure

– It provides a consolidated view of the privacy and security controls catalog

– It includes new, state-of-the-practice controls based on threat intelligence and empirical attack data
