"The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) works with experts from industry, government, and academia to address businesses' most pressing cybersecurity problems with practical, standards-based solutions using commercially available technologies. We seek problems that affect an entire sector, or multiple sectors. We then identify applicable standards and best practices and collaborate with creators of commercial, off-the-shelf products to use them in developing example solutions in our labs. Finally, we publish NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guides (Special Publication series 1800), which include all of the information and instruction businesses need to deploy the use of secure, standards-based solutions.
