Helm Point’s 3-Phase Approach to Compliance
“Advanced Cyber Hygiene” is meeting all 110 security practices, mirrored in the NIST SP 800-171 security controls—applied to protect (CUI) Controlled unclassified information in non-federal systems and organizations.
Depending on your organization’s current level of cybersecurity readiness, our expert team offers three phases of support. Our solutions are reliable, efficient, cost-effective, and worry-free.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology is a non-regulatory government agency that develops technology, metrics, and standards to drive innovation and economic competitiveness at U.S.-based organizations in the science and technology industry. As part of this effort, NIST produces standards and guidelines to help federal agencies meet the requirements of the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA). NIST also assists those agencies in protecting their information and information systems through cost-effective programs.
The Department of Defense (DoD) chose to implement Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) as their response to protecting significant sensitive defense information and negate potential vulnerabilities located within contractor’s information systems. This initiative will help enhance the protection of Federal Contract Information (FCI), Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), and Covered Defense Information (CDI) for more than 300,000 companies in the supply chain.
HelmWatch monitoring ensures that you are always compliant
Compliance isn’t a one-time exercise. It’s rooted in the awareness and implementation of the controls on a daily basis. In fact, demonstration and evidence of such practices are a requirement for CMMC Certification. Our annual HelmWatch plan ensures that you make the most out of your compliance investment. Each month, 11 different NIST 800-171 controls are monitored so that all 110 controls are evaluated over a twelve-month period.
By implementing our HelmWatchplan, you can:
- Attest with confidence for every proposal and contract that your organization is NIST compliant.
- Access your NIST score at any time.
- Minimize level of effort and cost for recertification.
Monthly reports and an annual NIST compliance summary are included.
Does NIST Compliance Apply to My Organization?
Compliance for NIST SP 800-171 is required for government contractors, consultants, service providers and others that process, store or transmit Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) for state or federal agencies.
If you’re already doing business with the government, you are responsible for certifying, monitoring, and implementing IT system security and any CUI transmitted or stored in these systems. Critical cybersecurity practices will be ongoing. In fact, a non-compliant company may lose the ability to bid or recompete on government contracts.
And the benefits go beyond compliance—this is a model for improved record keeping, data handling, and securing your organization and its intellectual property.
