Since voluntary assessments began last August, assessors have been looking closely at defense contractors’ ability to meet the 320 assessment objectives in NIST 800-171A. For contractors and IT support teams, this means a big shift in how to think about achieving NIST 800-171 readiness and compliance. Looking at the 110 controls isn’t enough anymore. You must also think about how to meet the 320 objectives.
In this week’s Compliance Corner, we delve into the topic and look at:

  • The relationship between NIST 800-171 and NIST 800-171A
  • Importance of robust documentation in meeting the assessment objectives
  • Why focusing on the assessment objectives enables you to decrease the time and cost of assessments
