OATI Demonstrates Information Security through NIST SP 800-53 Examination

OATI is pleased to announce the successful completion of the National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-53 (NIST SP 800-53) examination, re-affirming OATI’s commitment to robust security practices.

Seven years ago, after a careful analysis and consideration of available best practices, OATI decided to pursue the NIST SP800-53 audit. This commitment stands strong today. The examination, conducted by Schellman & Company, LLC, inspected OATI Data Center operations against the NIST 800-53 standards. After a thorough examination, conducted in accordance with attestation standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, OATI was found in compliance with all Low baseline controls and some Moderate baseline controls across all OATI operations.

Through a commitment of yearly audits, OATI software solutions have built a reputation for their unparalleled security and reliability in North America for exceeding the energy industry standards. Each set of standards contains specific and detailed requirements related to business process, controls, and both cyber and physical security.

“NIST publishes stringent and well-thought-out standards relied on by federal agencies and private organizations alike,” said OATI President and CEO Dr. Sasan Mokhtari. “Choosing to adopt NIST standards has served OATI well in demonstrating our robust security practices.”
