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

Cavirin and NIST

The set of NIST 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.  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
