NIST CSF Maturity Assessment

A streamlined assessment of your cybersecurity program

Demonstrate Cybersecurity Program Maturity 

Many healthcare organizations struggle to understand the effectiveness of their cybersecurity programs. Traditional evaluations reference technology solutions and detailed technical configurations that must be managed, often overwhelming teams with remediation items.

Clearwater’s seasoned cybersecurity experts deliver a practical evaluation of organizational cybersecurity control expectations, focused on governance practices, policies, standards, procedures, and guidelines as the foundation for all other cybersecurity activities.

Describe your current security posture, strengthen your defenses, and communicate cybersecurity risk among stakeholders.

Clearwater identifies the status of individual cybersecurity controls by isolating and evaluating control building blocks and their level of adoption, including their definition, implementation, evolvement, and validation.

Clearwater’s assessment model and its outcomes support the enhancement of cybersecurity governance practices and program substructure, resulting in an organization better prepared for future risk analyses and resulting remediation efforts.

The NIST CSF Maturity Assessment provides a high-level but stabilized view of governance expectations, integrating cybersecurity controls into day-to-day operations, including alignment with subject matter expert activities. The goal is to help leadership understand at any point how well its cybersecurity program is operating relative to its policies and procedures.
