Do you work with government agencies?


Is your cybersecurity up-to-date?

What Is NIST 800-171?

Are you a manufacturer in the Long Island or NYC area who works with controlled unclassified information (CUI) from government agencies? No matter where you are along the government supply chain, NIST 800-171 is something you need to pay attention to. NIST compliance requirements refer to the National Institute of Standards and Technology standards that outline how to protect and distribute materials that aren’t classified but still sensitive. If you process, store, or transmit any potentially sensitive information for the Department of Defense (DoD), General Services Administration (GSA), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), or any other government agency, there are strict security standards you need to follow. We offer detailed consultation for NIST compliance so that your company can meet every security requirement outlined in NIST 800-171.
