FISMA NIST 800-171 Compliance and Application Security

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) developed Special Publication 800-171 to provide guidelines on
protecting confidentiality of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) in non Federal systems
and organizations and recommend security requirements for this.

NIST Special Publication 800-171 Revision 1 for FISMA

This publication (“Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Systems and Organizations”) has been developed by NIST to further its statutory responsibilities under the Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) of 2014, 44 U.S.C. § 3551 et seq., Public Law (P.L.) 113-283.

FISMA NIST 800-171 imposes various data protection, privacy and security testing requirements on all companies that must adhere to it. Holistic visibility and inventory of digital assets, web and mobile application security are an indispensable part of FISMA NIST 800-171 compliance process:

SECURITY REQUIREMENT 3.11.2

“Scan for vulnerabilities in organizational systems and applications periodically and when new vulnerabilities affecting those systems and applications are identified”

SECURITY REQUIREMENT 3.12.1

“Periodically assess the security controls in organizational systems to determine if the controls are effective in their application.”

SECURITY REQUIREMENT 3.12.3

“Monitor security controls on an ongoing basis to ensure the continued effectiveness of the controls.”

SECURITY REQUIREMENT 3.14.1

“Identify, report, and correct system flaws in a timely manner.”

ImmuniWeb® for FISMA NIST 800-171 Compliance

Application security and compliance for FISMA NIST 800-171 starts with holistic visibility of your digital assets, related risks and threats. You simply cannot protect what you don't know. Therefore, we recommend commencing your FISMA NIST 800-171 compliance efforts with IT asset discovery, inventory, classification and risk scoring. Our ImmuniWeb® Discovery leverages OSINT technology to rapidly detect your external web, mobile and cloud assets equipped with attractiveness and hackability scores. Based on our award-winning AI technology, ImmuniWeb Discovery will likewise provide you with a snapshot of your exposure in the Deep and Dark Web. Once completed, you are ready to start well-informed and risk-based application security testing for the purpose of FISMA NIST 800-171 compliance.

For one-time security testing of your web applications and APIs, we recommend using ImmuniWeb® On-Demand equipped with CVE, CWE reporting and CVSSv3 risk scoring. Its in-depth and rapid testing is based on OWASP Testing Guide (OTGv4), NIST SP 800-115 Technical Guide to Information Security Testing and Assessment, PCI DSS Information Supplement Penetration Testing Guidance, FedRAMP Penetration Test Guidance and ISACA’s How to Audit GDPR. The testing comprehensively covers full spectrum of security vulnerabilities from SANS Top 25 and OWASP Top 10.

For iOS and Android mobile apps and their backend (e.g. APIs or REST/SOAP web services) we provide all-inclusive testing with ImmuniWeb® MobileSuite equipped with CVE, CWE reporting and CVSSv3 risk scoring. Its in-depth and rapid testing is based on OWASP Mobile Security Testing Guide (MSTG) and OWASP Testing Guide (OTGv4), NIST SP 800-115 Technical Guide to Information Security Testing and Assessment, PCI DSS Information Supplement Penetration Testing Guidance, FedRAMP Penetration Test Guidance and ISACA’s How to Audit GDPR. The testing comprehensively covers full spectrum of security vulnerabilities from SANS Top 25 and OWASP Mobile Top 10.

For most critical applications that directly impact your FISMA NIST 800-171 compliance we offer ImmuniWeb® Continuous for incremental 24/7 testing of any new or updated code. It is equipped with CVE, CWE reporting and CVSSv3 risk scoring, its in-depth and rapid testing is based on OWASP Testing Guide (OTGv4), NIST SP 800-115 Technical Guide to Information Security Testing and Assessment, PCI DSS Information Supplement Penetration Testing Guidance, FedRAMP Penetration Test Guidance and ISACA’s How to Audit GDPR. The testing comprehensively covers full spectrum of security vulnerabilities from SANS Top 25 and OWASP Top 10.
