The Time Is Now, Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late…
Don’t be fooled by the imposters, achieving true NIST compliance can be a complex task for many, riddled with many new challenges and guidelines. These guidelines were developed by The National Institute of Standards and Technology (“NIST”) and there are multiple variations of NIST Special Publications such as NIST SP 800-171 Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Non-federal Information Systems and Organizations and NIST SP 800-53 Recommended Security Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations, plus many more.

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 is defined as, “Controlled Unclassified Information”, 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. 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, this is a catalog of security controls, published by NIST, for all U.S. federal information systems except those related to national security. It 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 unless otherwise directed. NIST also created (FIPS) Federal Information Processing standards to strengthen FISMA guidelines. A combination of NIST SP 800-53 and FIPS 200 ensure appropriate security requirements and controls for your business systems will be met.
