Digital Security Plan (DSP) Bundle #4 - 45% Discount
Products Included in DSP Bundle #4
This is our most popular Digital Security Program (DSP) bundle for companies that are focused on both EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) and NIST 800-171 compliance.
Digital Security Program (DSP)
- Most popular product for organizations that must address more than just a single framework (e.g., NIST 800-53, ISO 27002 or NIST Cybersecurity Framework).
- Maps to over 100 statutory, regulatory and contractual cybersecurity and privacy frameworks to create a hybrid approach to cybersecurity policies, standards, controls and metrics.
- Provides 1-1 mapping with the Secure Controls Framework (SCF), so you can easily align your policies, standards and metrics with the controls you use from the SCF!
- The DSP addresses more than just the “why?” and “what?” questions in an audit, since in addition to the core policies and standards that form the foundation for your cybersecurity program, the DSP comes with controls and metrics!
Risk Management Program (RMP)
- The RMP addresses the “how?” questions for how your company manages risk.
- This is an editable Microsoft Word document that provides program-level guidance to directly supports the WISP and DSP policies and standards for managing cybersecurity risk.
- In summary, this addresses fundamental needs when it comes to risk management requirements:
- How risk is defined.
- Who can accept risk.
- How risk is calculated by defining potential impact and likelihood.
- Necessary steps to reduce risk.
- Risk considerations for vulnerability management.
- The RMP is based on leading frameworks, such as NIST 800-37, NIST 800-39, ISO 31010 and COSO 2013.
Cybersecurity Risk Assessment (CRAT)
- The CRAT supports the RMP product in answering the “how?” questions for how your company manages risk.
- This contains both an editable Microsoft Word document and Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that allows for professional-quality risk assessments.
- The CRAT directly supports the RMP, as well as the WISP and DSP policies and standards, for managing cybersecurity risk. It does this by enabling your company to produce risk assessment reports.
Vulnerability & Patch Management Program (VPMP)
- The VPMP addresses the “how?” questions for how your company manages technical vulnerabilities and patch management operations.
- This is an editable Microsoft Word document that provides program-level guidance to directly supports the WISP and DSP policies and standards for managing vulnerabilities.
- In summary, this addresses fundamental needs when it comes to vulnerability management requirements:
- Who is responsible for managing vulnerabilities.
- What is in scope for patching and vulnerability management.
- Defines the vulnerability management methodology.
- Defines timelines for conducting patch management operations.
- Considerations for assessing risk with vulnerability management.
- Vulnerability scanning and penetration testing guidance.
- Information Assurance (IA) guidance to support secure engineering activities.
Vendor Compliance Program (VCP)
- The VCP addresses the “how?” questions for how your company manages risk with third parties (e.g., service provides, vendors, contractors, etc.).
- This is an editable Microsoft Word document that is essentially a “mini-WISP” document that is intended to be shared with third parties, as compared to sharing detailed policies and standards.
- The VCP contains concise cybersecurity-related expectations that your company expects your third parties to abide by.
- The text from the VCP can be used in a contract addendum or shared as a stand-alone document.
- The VCP helps provide evidence of due care in how your company informs third parties about their cybersecurity obligations.
Cybersecurity Incident Response Program (CIRP)
- The CIRP addresses the “how?” questions for how your company manages cybersecurity incidents.
- This is primarily an editable Microsoft Word document, but it comes with Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Visio templates.
- In summary, this addresses fundamental needs when it comes to incident response requirements:
- Defines the hierarchical approach to handling incidents.
- Categorizes eleven different types of incidents and four different classifications of incident severity.
- Defines the phases of incident response operations, including deliverables expected for each phase.
- Defines the Integrated Security Incident Response Team (ISIRT) to enable a unified approach to incident response operations.
- Defines the scientific method approach to incident response operations.
- Provides guidance on how to write up incident reports (e.g., lessons learned).
- Provides guidance on forensics evidence acquisition.
- Identifies and defines Indicators of Compromise (IoC).
- Identifies and defines sources of evidence.
- The CIRP contains “tabletop exercise” scenarios, based on the categories of incidents.
- This helps provide evidence of due care in how your company handles cybersecurity incidents.
- The CIRP is based on leading frameworks, such as NIST 800-37, NIST 800-39, ISO 31010 and COSO 2013.
Security & Privacy by Design (SPBD)
- The SPBD addresses the “how?” questions for how your company ensures both security and privacy principles are operationalized.
- This is an editable Microsoft Word document that provides program-level guidance to directly supports the WISP and DSP policies and standards for ensuring secure engineering and privacy principles are operationalized on a daily basis.
- The concept of “secure engineering” is mandatory in numerous statutory, regulatory and contractual requirements. The SPBD provides a “paint by numbers” approach to ensure your company has evidence of both due care and due diligence for operationalizing security and privacy principles.
- The CIRP is based on numerous frameworks, but the core is NIST 800-160, which is the de facto standard on secure engineering.
NIST 800-171 Compliance Criteria (NCC)
- This is our “consultant in a box” NIST 800-171 checklist in an editable Microsoft Excel format.
- Each of the NIST 800-171 controls from Appendix D is mapped to its corresponding NIST 800-53 control.
- Each of the NIST 800-53 controls are broken down to identify:
- Reasonably-expected criteria to address the control.
- Applicable compliance guidance;
- Methods to address the requirement; and
- Status of compliance for each control so you can use it for a self-assessment.
- The NCC also covers Appendix E Non-Federal Organization (NFO) controls.
- The NCC maps into the WISP and DSP products, so they work in concert together for helping you comply with NIST 800-171.
System Security Plan (SSP) & Plan of Action & Milestones (POA&M) Templates (SSP)
- These are fully editable templates.
- One template is a Microsoft Word-based System Security Plan (SSP) that contains all the criteria necessary to have your SSP documented to meet NIST 800-171 compliance expectations.
- One template is a Microsoft Excel-based Plan of Action & Milestones (POA&M) that contains fields necessary to track control deficiencies from identification through remediation.
In addition to what you get in Bundle #1, you get the following procedures template:
NIST 800-171 Cybersecurity Standardized Operating Procedures Template (CSOP)
- The CSOP is a template for procedures. This is an expectation that companies have to demonstrate HOW cybersecurity controls are actually implemented.
- This is an editable Microsoft Word document.
- Given the difficult nature of writing templated procedure statements, we aimed for approximately a "75% solution" since it is impossible write a 100% complete cookie cutter procedure statement that can be equally applied across multiple organizations. What this means is ComplianceForge did the heavy lifting and you just need to fine-tune the procedure with the specifics that only you would know to make it applicable to your organization. It is pretty much filling in the blanks and following the helpful guidance that we provide to identify the who/what/when/where/why/how to make it complete.
- The NIST 800-171 CSOP is mapped to NIST 800-53 and NIST 800-171 requirements.
