We have a few discounted bundles specifically tailored for clients who need to comply with NIST 800-171:
This is one of the most popular packages we have. It contains NIST-based policies and standards, we well as the NCC "consultant in a box" product to solidly get you on the road to NIST 800-171 compliance.
NIST-based Written Information Security Program ( WISP)
The WISP addresses the “why?” and “what?” questions in an audit, since policies and standards form the foundation for your cybersecurity program.
NIST 800-53 based cybersecurity policies & standards in an editable Microsoft Word format.
Each of the NIST 800-53 rev4 families has a policy associated with it, so there is a total of 26 policies.
Under each of the policies are standards that support those policy statements. These standards equate to the moderate control set from NIST 800-53 rev 4, which is needed for NIST 800-171.
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.
In addition to what you get in Bundle #1, you get the following risk management products:
Risk Management Program ( RMP)
The RMP addresses the “how?” questions for how your company manages
risk. This is an editable Microsoft Word document that providers 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.
In addition to what you get in Bundle #2, you get the following vulnerability & patch management product:
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 providers 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.
In addition to what you get in Bundle #3, you get the following vendor / service provider management product:
Vendor Compliance Program ( VCP)
The VCP addresses the “how?” questions for how your company manages risk with third parties (e.g., service providers, 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.
In addition to what you get in Bundle #4, you get the following incident response management practices:
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.
In addition to what you get in Bundle #5, you get the following Security by Design (SbD) and Privacy by Design (PbD) management product:
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 providers 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.
This is for companies that are happy with their existing policies and standards, but need help with managing risk and getting on track with NIST 800-171 compliance:
