With today’s integrated information systems it can be a challenge to understand where one system ends and another begins. Getting the system boundary right can make the difference between executing a relatively simple set of compliance tasks and struggling to understand and manage the security risks that complex network architecture can create.
NIST 800-171 guidance focuses on high level considerations rather than the nuts and bolts of typical network architecture for commercial systems. Redesigning existing commercial systems or creating a separate system for government contracting work can be time consuming and expensive. You are chasing compliance instead of focusing on what you do best.

With years of compliance expertise built in to Rizkly, you have the hard-earned knowledge of security experts at your fingertips. And you still get the assistance of a compliance guide to help you finish faster. Take that, Mr. System Boundary!
