In this seminar, we will help you to understand:
- What is required for NIST 800-171 compliancy?
- How can your business meet these requirements?
- How can you use NIST to differentiate yourself in the marketplace?
We are pleased to have Ashlee Breitner from the University of Michigan Economic Growth Institute speaking about NIST and how her organization can help manufacturers pay to become NIST compliant.
As of January 1, 2018, government contractors are expected to have implemented the requirements of NIST 800-171. If an audit determines a failure to meet the requirements of NIST 800-171, consequences may include criminal, civil, administrative, or contract penalties – including termination of contracts.
As of 2019, the Department of Defense (DoD) will begin auditing companies’ cybersecurity procedures that want to win contracts and it plans to start within the next 18 months, according to Ellen Lord, DoD undersecretary for acquisition and sustainment.
NIST 800-171 is centered around the need to protect data. This is required for many government contractors and is becoming increasingly important for any manufacturer that sells their products to larger companies. Since cyber security and the protection of data is becoming increasingly important, manufacturers will need to be able to illustrate what they’ve done. This will increasingly be a criterion for businesses making buying decisions.
What are the requirements? NIST has 14 sections broken down into 110 required controls. The requirements apply to all components of nonfederal information systems and organizations that process, store, or transmit controlled unclassified information (CUI).
