Does Your Organization Meet All NIST 800-171 Compliance Requirements?

Don’t risk losing contract renewals, new bids or the ability to secure future contracts because of noncompliance. Be prepared for your NIST 800-171 audit.

As of 2017, any entity that processes or stores US government Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) — government contractors, research institutions, consulting companies, manufacturing contractors — must comply with the stringent requirements of NIST 800–171 or be prepared to face a myriad of risks, including the loss of contract renewals, newly won bids, or the ability to secure future contracts. In January 2020, the Department of Defense released the initial version of Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) standard. Certifications will begin for new and existing defense contractors this year and a CMMC certification will be required in place of self-attested NIST compliance.
