What is a NIST 800-53 Assessment?

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.

Why would I want one?

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’ve seen high profile breaches on the news and wonder how secure you really are
What makes FRSecure different?

There are many significant value propositions that our clients realize. Examples include:

  • FRSecure’s Methodology – FRSecure has developed a proprietary approach to assessing information security risks.  It’s more than a checklist of questions and recorded answers.  Our approach gives you a full picture of your risks – prioritized and rated – with recommended solutions, so you know which security investments will have the greatest impact.
  • FRSecure’s Project Leader – All of our project leaders have more than 15 years of information security experience as a leader in, and consultant for hundreds of companies ranging from the Fortune 100 to SMBs.  BIO’s for our project leaders are available upon request.
  • Full Transparency – FRSecure strongly believes in empowering our customers.  The more knowledge transfer that occurs during our engagement, the more value our customers recognize.  FRSecure fully discloses the methods, tools, and configurations used to perform analysis work for our customers in the hope that they can easily adopt our processes for their future benefit.
  • Product Agnostic – FRSecure does not represent any third-party products or services; on purpose.  Our projects and recommendations stand on their own, with no ulterior motive to sell you things you don’t really need.
What are the deliverables I should expect?

We consistently get great feedback on our reporting style. FRSecure has spent years developing reports that 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
What does a NIST 800-53 Assessment cost?
