Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) is what NIST 800-171 is all about. Once you figure out what it is, then you need to know where it is, so that you can make sure it is secured. Government contracts will spell out some CUI that falls under NIST 800-171 but you also have to consider information that is “collected, developed, received, transmitted, used, or stored by or on behalf of the contractor in support of the performance of the contract.” (DFARS 252.204-7012) It’s tough to know whether the scope of your NIST 800-171 compliance work is too broad or too narrow or just right.



That’s where Guided Compliance comes in. Rizkly takes the guesswork out of figuring out CUI. All you need to do is answer simple questions about your system and Rizkly guides you through NIST 800-171 compliance.
