The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) information technology laboratory is responsible for developing a cybersecurity framework and guideline, NIST SP 800-53, for the US federal government agencies to heighten the security of information systems. These guidelines help the US government maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the data and protect the systems against cybersecurity attacks. NIST. SP 800-53 has had 5 revisions so far and is composed of more than 1,000 Security Controls, covering both technology and operational aspects, categorized to 20 Control Families.

nistAll U.S. federal government agencies and contractors are required to comply with NIST SP 800‐53; however, many state and local governments, as well as private organizations, also use NIST SP 800‐53 as their security controls framework.

For years, BigFix been used by customers to support NIST 800-53 compliance. Recently, I-Lung Kao, HCL BigFix Product Manager, has written a white paper to explain how the various Security Controls in each Control Family are supported by BigFix.
