Case Study: How a Defense Contractor Achieved a Near-Perfect NIST 800-171 Score in DIBCAC Audit

In a recent rigorous Department of Defense (DIBCAC) audit, a small- to medium- sized defense contractor achieved a near-perfect audit score by meeting 109 out of 110 controls based on the 110 NIST 800-171 practices. The contractor’s success has ensured they will soon meet all 110 NIST requirements and, moreover additionally, that they have developed a strong foundation for CMMC Level 3 compliance.

Our newest case study shows how Dr. Jose Neto of PC Warriors successfully guided this contractor through their NIST 800-171 preparations and audit.
