The adage “your greatest strength is also your worst weakness” applies to compliance frameworks too. NIST 800-171 requirements were designed to be flexible, which turns out to be both a benefit and a drawback for small and mid-sized government contractors.

With no authorized third-party certification process for NIST 800-171, contractors are left wondering if their security controls are adequate to protect controlled unclassified information (CUI). Hiring security vendors or conducting formalized internal audits is beyond the reach of many contractors. They need access to expertise that fits their budget and their timeframe for compliance.

Our Guided Compliance approach takes you through each step necessary to protect CUI so that you are not left wondering whether or not your security makes the grade.
