Meeting Federal NIST 800-171 Requirements for Contractors & Others

Prepare for the December 2017 deadline now with proven controls from Tripwire.

 

The federal government has released new acquisition rules to protect sensitive but unclassified data when it moves to non-federal systems. This means that IT systems owned and operated by non-federal organizations will have to meet safeguarding standards as specified in NIST SP 800-171. The organizations affected can include government contractors, system integrators, state and local governments and schools.

The mandate for organizations supporting DoD is fast approaching (Dec 2017) and civilian side organizations should be prepared to meet similar stringent deadlines. Federal contracting and procurement staff should start working with vendors to ensure that new rules are understood and there is no disruption of contracts.
