The guidelines for cybersecurity provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are deemed the standard for best practices. However, trying to implement the necessary security controls and become NIST compliant can be exceptionally challenging. At Image Technology, our NIST compliance consulting services are designed to help organizations interpret these requirements, implementing programs that will not only effectively maintain compliance, but protect the security and data integrity of their business.
Why Trust Image Technology for NIST Compliance?
Our experts, alongside the NIST cybersecurity framework, work to help businesses of all sizes better understand, manage, and reduce the risks associated with cybersecurity by better protecting their networks and data. To meet the security needs of every business, the NIST cybersecurity framework can be integrated into five different areas:
Identify: The identify function determines the threats and all assets, such as business systems, people, assets, data, and capabilities, that could be jeopardized. This allows for organizations to focus and prioritize security efforts consistent with risk management strategy and organization needs.
Protect: This function outlines the best safeguards needed to protect all of the assets that have been previously identified. The protect function also supports the ability to limit or contain the impact of a potential cybersecurity event.
Detect: The detect function specifies the operations that need to be carried out in order to identify the occurrence of a security risk.
Respond: Once a threat or abnormality has been detected, a reaction must be set in place to deal with the issue. This function outlines the critical procedures to take in the event of a detected threat.
Recover: This function works to retrieve any data that has been lost in the instance of a breach or attack. It also works to restore services to key systems that may have been harmed. Furthermore, communication between both internal and external stakeholders about the incident is handled.
