NIST Compliance Support

NIST compliance may seem complicated, but at its core, it’s just about cybersecurity – something you need to manage whether you’re subject to NIST compliance or not.

There are a lot of misconceptions out there about NIST compliance. Many tend to assume at least one of the following assumptions about NIST compliance is true – do you?

  • Becoming NIST compliant is inordinately expensive
  • Becoming NIST compliant is inordinately expensive
  • If you don’t work for the government, then you don’t need to be NIST compliant
  • You’re already out of time to become NIST compliant because it’s past deadline

How did you do? Which one(s) do you think are false?

The truth? They all are.

NIST Compliance 101

With NIST 800-171, it’s the contractor’s responsibility to safeguard all data and information related to any work performed for the DoD, including:

Controlled Technical
Information (CTI)

Information that would
be described as
Controlled Unclassified
Information (CUI)

Covered Defense
Information (CDI)

If you’re not compliant, you’re technically no longer qualified to contract with the DoD – no matter which contracts you have in place or the professional relationships you’ve built over the years.
