What is NIST 800-171?
NIST 800-171 is a framework that specifies how your information systems and policies need to be setup in order to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).
Essentially, NIST 800-171 is a set of standards that define how to safeguard and distribute material deemed sensitive but not classified. NIST 800-171 was developed after the FISMA (Federal Information Security Management Act) was passed in 2003, resulting in several security standards and guidelines. It was created in part to improve cybersecurity, especially after numerous well-documented breaches in the past few years.
Who does it apply to?
- Government contractors
- Manufacturers & distributors working with government contractors
- Institutions that use federal data for research or development
If you hold for business purposes electronic copies of ANY data that is the property of, or will become the property of the U.S. federal government, and copies of this data are not expressly identified as public, then NIST 800-171 applies to you.
