National Institute of Standards and Technology

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is a non-regulatory entity within the U.S. Department of Commerce that has played a critical role in keeping American technology at the forefront for over a century. NIST recognizes that even the most basic inventions require substantial backing. 

NIST is dedicated to advancing measurement science, standards, and technology in ways that increase economic security and improve quality of life, with the aim of supporting American innovation and industrial competitiveness. The ultimate objective is to foster ingenuity and commercial competitiveness in the United States. 

What do NIST ?

One of NIST’s primary responsibilities is to provide government agencies and businesses operating under government contract with guidance and best practices for the handling and safeguarding of data. 

Although NIST’s guidelines are intended primarily for use by government agencies and their contractors, accreditation by NIST can prove advantageous to organizations across both the public and commercial sectors. By devising comprehensive security plans with robust controls, organizations can benefit from NIST’s regulations to ensure the protection of their systems and data.
