Compliance Center Support for NIST 800-171

Every company today faces the risk of data breaches and cyber-attacks. To protect your business against these threats, it is important to adhere to various compliance regulations created by governments. 

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) framework is one such set of compliance standards that must be followed by all federal contractors handling Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). This is information that is highly sensitive, even though it’s unclassified. NIST compliance standards help businesses to keep their data safe and secure. By adhering to these standards, businesses can avoid hefty penalties and legal action in cases of data breaches. Compliance with NIST 800-171 is mandatory for organizations that handle CUI while doing work on behalf of the federal government.

NIST 800-171 is complex, and encompasses numerous aspects of information security, including access control, training, configuration, and more. FileCloud simplifies compliance by providing configurations relevant to specific NIST 800-171 requirements through its Compliance Center, largely removing the complicated manual work involved.

FileCloud ensures that your business can meet all NIST compliance requirements without you having to take extraordinary measures to do so. This gives you peace of mind, knowing that your business is well-protected against any legal implications arising from data breaches or cyber-attacks.

NIST 800 Compliance Standards

The various standards and guidelines in the NIST compliance standards database encompass the compliance requirements of other regulatory standards, such as HIPAA and FISMA. This NIST compliance framework for federal agencies is based on many security documents and publications, enforcing several stringent security measures.

The most common protocols in the NIST 800 series include:

  • NIST SP 800-171: NIST special publication that must be followed by federal agencies to demonstrate that they have adequate security to maintain the confidentiality of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).
  • NIST SP 800-53: Publication that states the security control guidelines for federal information systems.
  • NIST SP 800-37: NIST compliance framework that focuses on risk management and enlists activities for continuous security control categorization and monitoring.
  • NIST 800-207: This latest NIST security compliance protocol operates based on the Zero Trust principle for network security, focusing on authentication and authorization for every remote asset.

The primary objectives of the NIST 800 series in the NIST compliance standards database are:

  • Ensuring CUI is secured.
  • Developing the perfect workforce for cybersecurity.
  • Email protection and encryption.

FileCloud understands the crucial need for compliance in businesses and has taken the necessary steps to ensure that our platform adheres to NIST compliance requirements.

Role-Based Access Control

FileCloud helps you set up rules to allow only authorized personnel access to your files and folders. You can also control what actions they can perform on the files (view, edit, delete, share, and more). This way, you can be sure that your sensitive data is always safe.

Full Backup

You get a secure server backup capability with FileCloud. They offer self-service restoration and end-to-end data protection so that you can fully control your backups. This ensures data loss prevention in case of unforeseen events like cyber-attacks, power outages, and more.

Unlimited Versioning

FileCloud keeps track of all the changes made to your files and folders. You can view, restore, or download any previous version with just a few clicks, so even if your data is lost or corrupted, you can always get it back.

End-to-End Encryption

All files uploaded to FileCloud are encrypted with 256-bit AES, which is one of the strongest ciphers available today. This ensures that your data is always safe from prying eyes, whether at rest or in transit.

Ransomware Protection

FileCloud’s heuristic engine detects ransomware attacks and blocks them immediately. It also takes a snapshot of the system before and after the attack so that you can restore your data to its original state if required.

Hybrid Synchronization

FileCloud helps with NIST compliance in various ways, including optimal synchronizing of data and files between the cloud server and on-premises servers and branches.

Smart Storage

FileCloud complies with NIST standards by enforcing limits on offline copies on a par with the regulations. This is possible with the use of a virtual cloud server as local storage for all your files.

Multi-Factor Authentication

To prevent unauthorized access, you can set up two-factor or even three-factor authentication. This adds an extra layer of security to your account and helps you comply with NIST standards.
