DFARS & NIST SP 800-171

Is Your Business Compliant?

Manufacturing businesses contracted with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) are required to meet parameters of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS). This is a government regulation that applies to any business with a contract with the Department of Defense (DOD).

DFARS necessitates compliance with the security requirements outlined in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171, “Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Information Systems and Organizations.”

Manufacturers that are non-compliant with DFARS and NIST SP 800-171 are now losing existing DoD contracts as a result. Furthermore, no new contracts are being issued to manufacturing businesses that are not compliant, leading to large financial losses.
