NIST 800-171

NIST 800-171 is a framework for organizations that work with controlled unclassified information (CUI). If you are a government contractor or subcontractor, NIST compliance is essential.

What Is NIST Special Publication 800-171?

NIST 800-171 refers to National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-171, which governs controlled unclassified information (CUI) in nonfederal information systems and organizations.

It is a set of standards that define how to safeguard and distribute material deemed sensitive but not classified. 

It was created in part to improve cybersecurity after numerous well-documented breaches.


Who Is Affected By NIST 800-171 Guidelines?

Contractors and subcontractors that work with certain government agencies (including the Department of Defense) and handle CUI are required to comply with NIST 800-171. Failure to meet these requirements could result in the potential termination of contracts.
