Keeping Up with Federal Requirements – Cybersecurity and the Competitive Edge

NIST Special Publication 800-171 Revision 1 Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Systems and Organizations

Yesterday I had the opportunity to present to clients of the Alaska PTAC at the Annual Alaska PTAC Government Contracting Conference. Its been an honor to help the Alaska PTAC as a SME resource in cybersecurity and specifically the Defense Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) clause 252.204-7012 and the requirements for that are laid out in NIST SP 800-171. Preparing the presentation was a fun exercise for me, and it was amazing to recap all of the changes in SP800-171 over the last year and half, and then to get speak with contracting officers and contractors about how this is playing out in reality. As promised I have shared the slide deck here. If you are a business looking for help with planning, assessing, or implementing the SP800-171 requirements in your environment, please reach out to us.
