Achieving NIA Compliance with Fortra

See How Fortra Solutions Align With the National Information Assurance Policy

The National Information Assurance (NIA) Policy provides organizations with the necessary cybersecurity foundation and the relevant tools to enable the implementation of a full-fledged Information Security Management System. Keeping sensitive data and assets safe is the goal of regulatory cybersecurity frameworks such as the NIA.

The NIA policy guides organizations in classifying the impact of information security threats (and risk), as well as the selection of suitable mitigating controls, with the goal of:

  • Protecting information assets
  • Effectively manage information security risks
  • Achieving regulatory compliance
  • Easing the compliance journey for international standard certifications (ISO 27001 and others)

The NIA policy is applicable in all business contexts to support national and/or sectoral compliance requirements. But for security professionals, staying compliant can be difficult due to the complexity of applying the controls, especially without the right cybersecurity tools. This policy specifies high-level information classification and also focuses on system information and integrity for entities in the State of Qatar.

The security controls of NIA cover mainly technical control areas that need to be implemented as baseline security. In addition, NIA policy requires integrity checks of all servers, the regular review of system security, system audit trails and logs, and confirmation of the state of system configurations. Fortra’s solution portfolio offers deep coverage for NIA compliance. See the table below to learn how each section maps to its corresponding Fortra solution.
