CyberAssess helps companies comply with new requirements that all participants in federal programs meet standards included in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) systems security guidelines. In its Special Publication (SP) 800-171, NIST requires all companies handling controlled unclassified information (CUI) to complete an audit showing the status of their compliance with NIST 800-171 and report to the Department of Defense (DoD) Chief Information Officer (CIO) within 30 days of a contract award.
Using CyberAssess, an easy-to-use online tool, a company can complete a self-assessment, create an audit report, and generate the required report to the DoD CIO. For companies that identify security gaps that need to be closed and require professional help to close them, LCE can provide additional services including independent verification and validation, corrective action plans, and compliance maintenance.
LCE can help you comply with new federal requirements for protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). If you are awarded a contract that stipulates you are working with CUI, don’t let internal knowledge gaps or resource limitations prevent you from complying with the requirement for a self-audit and audit report within 30 days. We can help large and small companies cost-effectively meet deadlines and work on full compliance with NIST 800-171 requirements.
