Beschreibung Standard/Regelwerk

What is NIST 800 Series?

NIST standards are developed for the government organizations to secure their information systems. There is no certification scheme available based on the NIST standards. Contractors are now required to comply with NIST SP 800-171 with target deadlines. Very often the government also requires contractors to comply with NIST SP 800-53.


How does the NIST 800 Series conformance work?

NIST 800 Series can be conducted as an add-on to ISO 27001. We will issue a letter of conformity with an issue date.

If organization is not willing to go for ISO 27001 registration, DQS can conduct independent conformity assessment against the NIST standard. After successful assessment, DQS will issue a “Letter of Conformance (LOC)” and detailed assessment report as evidence of conformance to the applicable NIST standard. The assessment report and LOC will be valid for one year. Reassessment will be required for continuous evidence of conformance.


What does a NIST 800 conformance audit cost?

The cost of a NIST 800 conformance audit cannot be given as a lump sum as it is dependent on information from the customer. We would be happy to give you a customized quote.
