Companies of all sizes are struggling with how to comply with NIST 800-171. The basic premise is that Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) must be secured throughout the supply chain to protect against a cyber incident.
The tricky part of NIST 800-171 is that the rule does not require any specific certification and that various agencies have their own interpret of the regulation. For example, the Department of Homeland Security has stated that even when CUI is on a contractor’s or sub-contractor’s information system, it must be fully secured.
