NIST 800-53 R5


NIST 800-53 R5

‍NIST 800-53 is a catalog of security and privacy controls for all U.S. federal information systems except those related to national security.

The NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF), also known as special publication (SP) 800-53, provides a list of controls that support the development of secure and resilient federal information systems. NIST SP 800-53 rev. 5.1/800-53B is the latest version, containing 20 control families, each with multiple controls divided into low, medium and high priority.

The CyCognito platform aligns partially or substantially to 10 of the 20 control families as applied to externally facing assets. To learn more about how CyCognito aligns with NIST 800-53, download the datasheet here.
