NIST 800-171 and Government Contracts: Practical Advice for All Federal Contractors

Often viewed as a security “headache,” NIST SP 800-171 has caused a great deal of confusion among both prime and subcontractors. But, the fact is that full implementation of the NIST SP 800-171 controls is now a critical requirement for anyone doing business with the federal Government, and failing to adopt those controls poses a huge business risk for defense and non-defense contractors alike.

Join us for a discussion of current NIST SP 800-171 requirements, how they apply to you, why compliance is a must, and an overview of how to get started on the road to full compliance.

Join us for part two of this webinar, when we will discuss how full implementation of the NIST SP 800-171 controls helps to create business opportunities. We also will take a deeper dive into the practical implementation of NIST controls, including the creation of a Systems Security Plan (SSP) and Plan of Action and Milestones (POA&M).
