NIST Cybersecurity Services Plan


NIST 800-171A requirements are not about “checking the box” or a requirement to do business, but rather implementing NIST will support an organization’s longevity, stability, and security through a strong cybersecurity posture. Silent Sector will review a company’s NIST cybersecurity compliance plan on the Ivis compliance platform and provide feedback and recommendations if needed. This service provides an independent, expert review to ensure the company has a well defined, written plan to meet NIST Cybersecurity Compliance requirements.

Tier 1 – NIST Cybersecurity Plan Review

The NIST Cybersecurity Plan Review service takes the trial and error out of the NIST compliance process, reducing expenses, and clarifying path forward for a company. This program is designed for either those organizations that have already built a complete NIST cybersecurity plan and are leveraging the Ivis compliance platform or those who need recommendations on how to complete their plan to put into the Ivis compliance platform. It consists of two primary components.

NIST Cybersecurity Plan Review

A well designed NIST Cybersecurity Compliance Plan increases clarity by providing the most effective direction to bring a company from its current state to achieving and maintaining compliance. Silent Sector’s Plan Review provides an independent opinion to validate your current plan and may offer guidance to improve the plan where necessary.

Plan Recommendations

Some companies will have a plan in place, but may need adjustments in order to be considered viable. Professional recommendations are written alongside the existing plan in the Ivis compliance platform allow for focused effort and the best of resources through the duration of the compliance process.

Project Scope

In an effort to ensure that a company is able to meet and maintains compliance requirements, Silent Sector will perform the following activities related to NIST SP 800-171A.

Tier 2 – NIST Gap Analysis & Plan Development

NIST Gap Analysis & Cybersecurity Plan Development services take the trial and error out of the NIST compliance process, reducing expenses, increasing clarity, and paving a clear path forward. This program is designed for organizations that require a cybersecurity plan to meet NIST requirements and will be utilizing the Ivis compliance platform. This program consists of two primary components.

Gap Analysis – Current Posture to NIST SP 800-171A

Companies will have a detailed understanding of where they fall short of meeting NIST SP 800-171A requirements. Silent Sector will review the existing compliance plan to provide a 3rd party perspective on the status of the plan and assist with identifying shortcomings. This allows for focused effort and the best of resources through the duration of the compliance process.

NIST Cybersecurity Compliance Plan Development

Every company differs and therefore requires its own unique strategy to meet and maintain NIST cybersecurity requirements. The NIST Cybersecurity Compliance Plan will provide a clear path from its current state to achieving and maintaining compliance. This plan will incorporate the use of the Ivis compliance platform.

Project Scope

In an effort to ensure that a company is able to meet and maintains compliance requirements, Silent Sector will perform the following activities related to NIST SP 800-171A.

Gap Analysis – Current Posture to NIST SP 800-171A

  • Client interviews, 4-8 hours based on availability and readiness
  • A detailed comparison of interview responses with NIST cybersecurity requirements

Tier 3 – NIST Cyber Alignment

The NIST Cyber Alignment program takes the trial and error out of the NIST compliance process, reducing expenses, increasing clarity, and paving a clear path forward. This program consists of three primary components.

Gap Analysis – Current Posture to NIST SP 800-171A

Companies will have a clear picture of what is already in place and where they fall short of meeting NIST requirements. This allows for focused effort and the best of resources through the duration of the compliance process.

NIST Alignment Plan Development

Every company differs and therefore requires its own unique strategy to meet and maintain NIST cybersecurity requirements. The NIST Alignment Plan increases clarity by providing the most effective direction to bring a company from its current state to achieving and maintaining compliance. It leverages the Ivis compliance platform for ease of tracking and evidence retention.

Cyber Risk Assessment

A clear understanding of risks and potential attack vectors is the foundation of cybersecurity. Silent Sector provides a clear but detailed analysis of vulnerabilities and the current state of risk.

Silent Sector will provide an independent perspective of cybersecurity vulnerabilities and risks related to network infrastructure and any critical web applications. This allows for the development of a strong security posture, while making the best use of resources.

Conducting the Risk Assessment will:

  • Identify vulnerabilities in critical network and web application components
  • Create a vulnerability and risk baseline for any publicly accessible infrastructure
  • Provide reference and guidance documentation for use by IT Team leadership
  • Provide 3rd party assessment documentation for presentation to prospects and clients
