NIST 800-53 Assessments

Need a NIST 800-53 Assessment?

As your expert security partner, C’S|3 can provide you with the necessary assessment and consulting services to meet the NIST 800-53 security requirements. C’S|3 offers two gap analysis options to help determine how close your organization and current information security program are to meeting these requirements.

A NIST 800-53 assessment is an information security assessment measured against the National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-53 security standard. It is essentially a gap assessment, where gaps to the standard are identified, measured and reported to you.

NIST is a recognized industry security standard. There are multiple reasons to conduct a NIST assessment:

  • Regulatory compliance requiring a security assessment where NIST is appropriate (i.e. healthcare, government, etc.)
  • A valued customer is requiring one
  • You have seen high profile breaches on the news and wonder how secure you really are

We consistently get great feedback on our reporting style.C’S|3 assessment reports communicate assessment results in clear, easy to digest ways, that are appropriate for both technical and non-technical audiences. Typical deliverables out of an information security assessment include:

  • Executive Summary Report
  • Full Report
  • Action Plan and/or Road Map

At C’S|3, every project is custom designed for our clients. We take into account your organization’s size, complexity, industry, compliance requirements, and most importantly, your actual needs. Because of our tailored approach, all you need to do is spend a few minutes on the phone with our team to make sure we are delivering exactly what you need and want.
