Micro-Summit – Understanding NIST SP 800-171 for Protecting CUI

Understanding NIST SP 800-171 for Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)

The protection of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) in nonfederal systems and organizations is of paramount importance to federal agencies and can directly impact the ability of the federal government to successfully conduct its assigned missions and business operations. The suite of guidance (NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-171, SP 800-171A, and SP 800-171B) focuses on protecting the confidentiality of CUI, and recommends specific security requirements to achieve that objective. It does not change the information security requirements set forth in Federal Information System Modernization Act (FISMA), nor does it alter the responsibility of federal agencies to comply with the full provisions of the statute, the policies established by OMB, and the supporting security standards and guidelines developed by NIST.
