Case Study

NIST 800-171 Series

Welcome, we are going to be running a series of articles describing how to address and resolve all of the controls in the NIST 800-171 compliance requirement. The first thing we suggest you do is getting a tracking software product. You can use an excel spreadsheet but this can quickly get out of control. A trusted Managed Security Service Provider can suggest the correct vendors use in order to track and maintain compliance. You want to choose a vendor that allows auditors to log in and check out what you are doing in a read-only manner. You want to have reminders, reports and the ability to assign tasks to individuals and be able to track these tasks and their progress. Some of these products offer evaluations, pre-analysis, and questionnaires that might help you figure out where you stand. Start with tracking software and then lets dive into each control and how to address them.
