Achieving NIST compliance Can Be Challenging Without An Experience NIST Consultant On Your Side. If Your Business Is Not either NIST 800 (SP 800-171, SP 800-53, Etc.), DFARS, or CMMC Compliant, You Will Not Be Able To Do Business With The Department of Defense (DoD) Or Any Other DoD Procurement Agency.
Praetorian Secure’s NIST Compliance Experts have been performing NIST Compliance Consulting Services for more than a decade. Covering the entire NIST SP 800 series of controls such as SP 800-171, SP 800-53, and more. To begin, our team performs an in-depth review of your existing security controls transforming complex compliance requirements into an effortless process. During this effort, we leverage our expertise, understanding of compliance guidelines, and forward-focus to meet your requirements. Achieving NIST compliance can be a challenging task for most, riddled with many requirements and guidelines. The National Institute of Standards and Technology also produces standards and guidelines to help federal agencies meet the requirements of FISMA (Federal Information Security Management Act). All things considered, understanding these guidelines and defining actionable tasks to reach compliance in a cost-effective manner is critical. Let our NIST experts provide a compliance solution that will meet your specific needs, contact us.

The NIST SP 800-171 standard, Protection Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Information Systems and Organizations, defines controls to safeguard information such as controlled technical information, or other information that would be described as controlled unclassified information (CUI) or covered defense information (CDI).
CUI stands for “Controlled Unclassified Information”. CUI is a broad category of information the government creates/possesses or that an entity creates/possesses on behalf of the government, including federal contractors that are now required to keep this information confidential. Also, CDI is a term coined by the DoD and is used interchangeably with CUI to describe the same cybersecurity rules and regulations. This standard provides security controls for U.S. federal information systems besides those related to national security matters.
For contractors, implementing NIST 800-171 is a requirement that must be met prior to the December 31, 2017 deadline. Contractors and relevant organizations that fail to fully implement NIST 800-171 by that time will be precluded from contracting with the DoD. This applies to all prime contractors and their subcontractors. Organizations that maintain NIST 800-171 compliance can maintain government contracts, as well as win new Federal contracts, in addition to improving their overall information security.
The NIST SP 800-53 standard, Recommended Security Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations, a catalog of security controls published by NIST for all U.S. federal information systems except those related to national security. Thus, NIST was designed to assist federal agencies to implement the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA) and also help create cost-effective and efficient programs.
Agencies are expected to be compliant with NIST security standards and guidelines by February 2006. In addition, NIST created (FIPS) Federal Information Processing standards to strengthen FISMA guidelines.A combination of NIST SP 800-53 and FIPS 200 ensures appropriate security requirements and controls for your business systems will be met.
