Readiness Assessment

Pillar: Digital Identity | Type: Conformity | Level: 1

Readiness Assessment in support of preparedness in potential future conformance testing. Involves examining the NIST criteria in each component, understanding approach and applicability in each case, and preparing a report with recommendations against individual criteria. Examination approach will be based on supplied documentation and interactive sessions with client delegates. Detailed hands-on solution examination is not in scope.

That's what they say ;-)
