NIST CSF

Accelerate Compliance Across NIST CSF

Implement, monitor, and automate NIST CSF activities with a tool as flexible as the framework.

Use automation to mitigate organizational cyber risk risk

Easy Access to Controls Aligned to NIST CSF Functions

The NIST CSF sets out cybersecurity activities and desired outcomes mapped to other frameworks like NIST SP 800-171, NIST SP 800-53, and ISO 27001. With Drata’s platform and its shared controls, you have quick visibility into your current security posture, what you need to do to further mitigate risk, and whether your risk mitigation program functions as intended. 

Using Drata’s controls and continuous control monitoring, you can achieve your defined business and security outcomes faster while continuously monitoring to ensure you are remaining in compliance. Sharing your security posture has never been easier with Trust Center, helping prove you take a security-first approach to risk mitigation.

A Single-Source Of Compliance and Monitoring Documentation

When implementing controls to manage NIST CSF functions, many companies incorporate various cybersecurity tools to monitor their growing business technology stack. When you integrate with Drata, you reduce your costs by consolidating all activities, monitoring, and documentation in a single, centralized location.


Using our shared controls framework and central readiness dashboard, you can align your current security controls to NIST CSF, gain visibility into gaps, and implement new controls based on our platform’s suggestions. Take it one step further and leverage Drata's Risk Management solution to have a deeper understanding of your risk posture.

Create And Map Custom Controls To Automated Tests

NIST CSF is flexible so businesses can focus on potential impacts based on their unique needs. Drata enables you to create custom controls so you can build your framework around your business objectives. Use our pre-built, cross-mapped controls or create your own.

When you map these to our automated tests, you achieve a unique compliance outcome that includes customization and automation. Further, with Jira native in Drata, you can automate the delegation and tracking of compliance-related tasks.

Frequently Asked Questions About NIST CSF

The National Institute of Standards and Technology is a non-regulatory agency connected with the United States Department of Commerce. They have established the NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity or the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF).

NIST CSF compliance is not required by law for all companies in the United States. While it’s mandatory for all government agencies and originally intended for critical infrastructure, contractors often use it to make sure that they follow best cyber risk mitigation practices. If your company does business with a government agency—in any capacity—your contract may reference NIST CSF compliance.
