The NCCoE accelerates businesses' adoption of standards-based, advanced security technologies. We:

  • consult with IT security professionals and other leaders to identify their most pressing cybersecurity issues

  • generate detailed technical descriptions of the problems and map the desired solution to NIST and industry standards and best practices

  • seek comments from the public to make the problem descriptions as broadly applicable as possible

  • invite technology vendors to collaborate with us: their standards-based products are modules in the end-to-end example solutions we build in our labs
