LocusView Solutions, a subsidiary of the Gas Technology Institute (GTI), was facing an increasing stream of requests for documentation, certifications, and penetration test results from their customers in the natural gas and energy sectors. The IT team wanted to answer each request for security information with a consistent package of responses.
The Cohesive team began by culling existing cybersecurity guidelines and evaluations to streamline the first three steps of the NIST implementation process. Next, the team used the broader frameworks and standards in the NIST function subcategories to map the compliance areas that matter most to their organization.
Since implementing Cohesive Networks’ approach to the NIST Framework, LocusView has passed initial audits and the first of several penetration tests.
Cohesive also providedVNS3 firewall virtual machines to manage and secure LocusView’s network.
