NIST Special Publication 800-171

NIST 800-171 establishes requirements for protecting the confidentiality of controlled unclassified information (CUI).  Contractors must implement the requirements contained in NIST SP 800-171 to demonstrate their provision of adequate security to protect covered defense information included in their contracts.  Requirements include a cybersecurity Self Assessment, establishment and validation of a System Security Plan (SSP), and the definition of security roles and responsibilities within an organization.   JC3 can assist in the NIST Self Assessment review and submission process, the creation and implementation of a responsive System Security Plan, and the development of training initiatives to ensure sustained compliance.
