NIST Cybersecurity


Comprehensive NIST Support


Cavirin actively supports and contributes to The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) set of cybersecurity guidelines and standards of recommended security controls for information systems at government agencies.

Cavirin and NIST Cybersecurity Guidelines

The set of NIST cybersecurity guidelines provides key foundational guidance in creating an effective cybersecurity posture. Cavirin's support is multifacited, spanning NIST 800-53r4, 800-171, and most recently, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF). This last document, still in final draft, provides organizations with a structure to apply the principles and best practices of risk management to improving the security and resilience of their critical infrastructures. It leverages currently available standards and guidelines such as ISO, CIS, and NIST to create this guidance. Cavirin’s security team has analyzed this document and translated the guidance into a set of technical controls that help organizations automatically align to the document’s recommendations.

Cavirin's comprehensive NIST support spans:

  • The NIST Cybersecurity Framework
  • NIST 800-53r4 - Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations
  • NIST 800-171 - Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Information Systems and Organizations

Implementing the NIST Cybersecurity Framework Shouldn't be Scary

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework provides key foundational guidance for improving an organizations' security posture and creating an effective cyber resilient infrastructure. Introduced in 2014, it was originally intended to protect critical infrastructure, but with the rising threat of cyberattacks it is now being adopted by numerous businesses proactively looking to protect their critical assets.

Watch this on-demand webinar as cybersecurity and compliance experts, Pravin Goyal and Anupam Sahai, review the five NIST Cybersecurity Framework functions and provide insight on successfully implementing and automating CSF across cloud, on-premise, and hybrid cloud infrastructures.

Get Your NIST Security Risk Score

To get an understanding of your security posture we’ll conduct a live assessment of your on-premise or cloud-based workloads, including Docker. You’ll see an overall score across all frameworks tested, and can even drill-down by OS, individual policy packs, and even specific control families. The score offers you a common view across multiple OSs with no conflicting guidance, and can even span on-premise and multiple cloud service providers.
