NIST SP 800-171
Do It Yourself Program

Register now for our DIY Program designed to help you quickly and cost-effectively comply with new DFARS mandates for Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).


While CyberDefenses provides the expertise and resources to perform your NIST SP 800-171 assessment and help you meet compliance mandates, many clients wish to take on these tasks themselves.

For public and private sector organizations that wish to perform their own NIST SP 800-171 assessments and start their own path to compliance, CyberDefenses offers the Do It Yourself (DIY) Program. Defense contractors, enroll now to meet the required milestones by the upcoming December 31st deadline.

Three Options Available:

  • The full program with the compliance course and the Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) Written Information Security Program (WISP) policy bundle
  • Compliance course only
  • CUI WISP policy bundle only

CUI WISP Policy Bundle

The policy bundle contains policy and planning templates designed to fully implement NIST 800-171 requirements within your organization, including:

Written Information Security Program (WISP)
System Security Plan (SSP)

The policy bundle is unique in the industry; it is designed specifically to save time and money by addressing only CUI requirements as opposed to a general-purpose program bloated with federal organization focused requirements.
