CYBERDEFENSES LAUNCHES NIST SP 800-171 DO-IT-YOURSELF PROGRAM
By Damon Fleury
Chief Technical Officer
As we mentioned in a blog post last month, we’re publishing a new NIST SP 800-171 Do-It-Yourself Compliance Program that expands our popular NIST SP 800-171 compliance resources. The more robust offering is designed to help federal contractors quickly address Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) and FAR regulations that mandate security controls for Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). The Program offers the tools you need to kick-start your efforts by achieving essential compliance steps before regulatory enforcement begins at the end of December 2017.
In addition to providing a way to rapidly satisfy mandates by the December 31st deadline, the new program is designed to save organizations significant money. Priced at $1495, the program costs considerably less than hiring resources to complete the required planning and documentation.
The NIST SP 800-171 Do-It-Yourself Program provides:
- One Seat (online or onsite) in a Two-Day instructor-led training class
We’ll guide you through the process of performing your own NIST SP 800-171 Assessment. Our instructors are security experts who have performed NIST SP 800-171 assessments for CyberDefenses’s security clients on a regular basis. As real-world practitioners, our instructors share their experiences to help enable your success.
- Self Assessment Templates and Worksheets
You’ll receive the materials required to perform your own readiness assessment for the new regulations.
- Full NIST SP 800-171 Policy Bundle
The policy bundle provides templates for everything you need to implement the security policies required to become compliant with NIST SP 800-171. A big part of achieving compliance (after the assessment) is implementing required written security policies. The bundle provides a scalable foundation for your organization.
Achieving full compliance requires a continued investment in infrastructure improvements. These resources provide your organization the starting point necessary to understand what is needed and begin making the changes immediately. These bundle components can also be purchased separately.
