NIST 800-171 Compliance
In 2017, Department of Defense (DoD) contractors learned about a new DFARS clause, 252.204.7012. This new clause required that contractors doing business with the Department of Defense be compliant with NIST 800-171 before the end of the year. With that date now past, it is even more important to be proactive to ensure that your company is compliant.
So, what exactly is NIST 800-171 compliance?
NIST 800-171 specifies how a company’s information systems are setup and utilized to protect information that is shared between the DoD and the contractor. This information is typically referred to as Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). Ensuring that this information is protected can be done via a cybersecurity and network assessment performed internally by the network professional or via outsourcing to an experienced contractor such as Alvaka.
To provide NIST 800-171 compliance our team will perform a DFARS readiness assessment. This review will assess a company’s systems to determine that the correct methodology and procedures are in place to meet the DoD’s policies and requirements.
