NIST Cybersecurity Framework Assessment Powered by MyCyberScorecard

It’s critical to have a comprehensive cybersecurity program to protect your brand and business. The key challenge is how to ensure your security controls are sufficient to secure your data, users, and systems. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provides a cybersecurity framework (CSF) to help any organization build a strong cybersecurity foundation.

As part of Pondurance’s cyber risk assessment services, we offer a focused review of your IT systems environment to identify baseline risk and maturity as they relate to the security practices recommended by the NIST with its CSF. At the conclusion of the assessment, Pondurance delivers an executive summary along with detailed findings, risk ratings, and recommendations available through our MyCyberScorecard platform for each control requirement. This ensures you have a comprehensive foundation to develop a plan of action milestones.


The Pondurance NIST-CSF Cybersecurity Framework Assessment is conducted by our team of security experts, partnering directly with you to guide you through the process. The framework core, designed to be intuitive and act as a communication layer between multidisciplinary teams, outlines a set of desired cybersecurity outcomes with categorized references to how they can be achieved.

Our Process

Pondurance conducts a review of existing policies and procedures, interviews the key people responsible for implementing them, and verifies procedure execution through artifact review.

Assessment & audit
Pondurance leverages NIST Cybersecurity Framework Assessment to provide an assessment and an evidence-based audit of the organization’s security program maturity, scoring across five high-level cybersecurity functions, 23 categories, and 108 subcategories, which cover the breadth of security objectives for any organization.

Our security experts generate and deliver an executive summary and a detailed summary showing maturity ranking, risk level, compliance risks, and recommendations for remediation, giving you a clear path to compliance and risk mitigation.
