What is NIST 800-171?

NASA, GSA, and DoD require contractors to comply with specific cybersecurity requirements in NIST SP 800-171. These standards specify the proper manner in which covered defense information (CDI) or controlled unclassified information (CUI) must be handled and protected.

To whom does it apply?

This mandate applies to all prime and subcontractors doing business with NASA, GSA, and the Department of Defense. If you don’t handle CDI/CUI you must still get an exception and may still need to comply with some parts of NIST SP 800-171.

What are the penalties for non-compliance? 

Failure to comply may subject contractors to penalties either by the United States Government (e.g., criminal, civil, administrative, and contractual actions in law), or by people or private organizations impacted by related failures (e.g., actions for damages).
