As a Small Manufacturer does NIST 800-171 apply?
DFARS applies to all prime and subcontractors (no matter the size) doing business with the Department of Defense. If you don’t handle CDI/CUI, you must still get an exception and may still need to comply with DFARS and NIST 800-171.
What’s the Big Deal?
The DFARS (Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement) requires defense contractors to comply with specific cybersecurity requirements detailed in NIST 800-171. These standards specify the proper manner in which Covered Defense Information (CDI) or Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) must be handled and protected.
NIST 800-171, while dated, is still relevant today. Companies/organizations looking to do work with the Department of Defense or Defense Industrial Base now must be CMMC (Cyber Security Maturity Model) compliant beginning January 1st 2020.
So why would you need to be NIST 800-171 complaint you may ask?
Being NIST 800-171 compliant will give your company/organization a competitive edge over the competition in a market where data security is increasingly valuable to businesses and consumers. Being NIST 800-171 complaint certifies your company/organization has a strong level of cyber hygiene giving both you and your customers a sense of ease knowing that your sensitive information is being protected.
