Harvey Newstrom, Cyber Security Architect
(Resume updated 5/1/2015)
321.544.3642, Melbourne, FL


Leverage insider knowledge of NIST SP 800-53 controls to design, implement, and enforce enterprise-wide cyber security programs to achieve full, verifiable compliance in a unified cyber security framework.


Harvey Newstrom is a pioneer in the development of a unified cyber security framework.

  • He authored the first federal security architecture that combined INFOSEC, TCSEC, DCID, ISO, and NIST criteria into a single unified security framework to protect both classified and unclassified data.
  • His security architecture was cited by OMB auditors as “the best” of any agency.
  • His work was requisitioned by Dr. Ron Ross for inclusion into NIST SP 800-53 and 800-53A standards to protect all unclassified federal data.
  • These standards were later approved by the Joint Task Force to protect all DoD, Intelligence Community, and National Security classified data as well.
  • These standards are now required for civilian cloud services, telecommunications, and critical infrastructure.

Virtually all agencies and corporations are now legally mandated to implement these standards. Harvey Newstrom’s insider knowledge, unique career, and interdisciplinary skills will prove invaluable to any organization implementing the NIST-based Risk Management Framework (RMF) standards.
