NIST 800-171, whether you fear it, or are resigned to it, it is coming to your business.  In 2019, the Department of Defense will begin conducting supply chain audits for 800-171, will you be ready?

In our presentation we will focus on what you need to do to be ready for 2019. We will work through how to build your System Security Plan and your Plan of Action and Milestones. We will discuss the financial implications of 800-171 for your business and you will leave with an understanding of what it’s going to take to compete.

The federal government is placing an ever-increasing emphasis on addressing cybersecurity threats. Any organization doing business with the federal government should expect these types of requirements to continue to evolve and intensify.

What is NIST 800-171?

On December 30, 2015, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) published a three-page interim rule to the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) that gives government contractors a deadline of December 31, 2017 to implement the requirements of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171.

These requirements protect the confidentiality of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) in non-federal systems and organizations. If you are a government contractor, or subcontractor failure to meet these requirements will result in the loss of your contracts.
