What is NIST 800-171, what does it mean for you, & how can help?

Protecting controlled unclassified information (CUI)

Clause 252.204.7012 in the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Special Publication 800-171 states that federal contractors and some subcontractors must follow the controls that specify the set up of IT systems and policies in relation to unclassified information.

If you are a contractor who holds US federal government information on non-federal systems, it is understandable that the governments would want to standardise the cyber and information security, and data protection defences of those contractors. can provide you with a framework to get you on the way to certification.


Each chapter of the NIST 800-171 certification is found in the NIST requirements project area of the platform. Work through each stage until complete, then use to continue the standard. can help you achieve NIST 800-171
