Service providers and IT professionals need to help organizations understand their cybersecurity posture and their level of vulnerability and risk. Full security audit projects are costly, time-consuming, often use out-of-date tools and concepts — yet some fundamental truths remain. That’s where the NIST Cybersecurity Framework comes in.

To facilitate your ability to make a security assessment of potential clients during the sales process, or an assessment of existing clients, we have created a security assessment questionnaire. The questions are worded in simple language and are organized and coded according to the categories of the NIST framework: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover. We believe these questions and the findings you will uncover will provide your team with insight into the organizations’ cybersecurity program and posture.
